Understood!  I've committed changes that that I think should do the trick for 

- In debug mode, a log handler is added to the root logger that writes events
  to standard error.  This is no longer conflated with the "startup" logging.

- When running Zope using "zopectl fg" (the best way to run things for
  debugging), zopectl will force debug mode to be enabled.

I don't know that I'd describe this as academic (most academics I've worked 
with considered the ability to change the code configuration enough), but if 
you're happy not to need it, I'm happy not to implement it.  ;-)
