No, NOT by default.  Our users have made it perfectly clear that they
don't want the logs cluttered with high-volume information about
non-error normal workings of the system.  Every time we have caused
the system to emit such data by default, the log level of the messages
in question has gotten dialed down in a later release.

I don't object to what Greg suggests as an option.  If we try to make
it the default behavior, we will find ourselves changing that.

As far as the debug/info/etc discussion goes: if there is a GUC variable
controlling it, just make the elevel be LOG.
