Seems like a great feature. Thanks, Fraser!

I actually wouldn't mind extending this to something like 2-4 weeks. In
some cases it might be useful to have access to older logs (PTOs, or
simply to just view the history for some reason). Is there any downside
to keeping the logs for a bit longer?

If you're talking about the log in the travis web interface, I would
keep it. It's easily accessible from the browser.
