Ehhh....I'm not sure I agree here.  That's kind of like saying, it ouwld
be nice if we could remove the steering wheel from a car for a nice long
strech of highway.  But what happens when you need to turn.  IMO there
will always be a need to enabling debugging at run-time in order to
trouble shoot problems.  

I do think that separating logging from debug would be good.
