I believe the reason for not doing that is that then one couldn't add
a field that's *not* being logged (because currently we don't have
remove-an-attribute support).

I like the "&log=T|F" syntax to control this more directly, as long as
"&log" remains being equivalent to "&log=T".

Generally we need to be very careful changing if we want to change any
current semantics here, as it will impact custom log files that people
create in their own scripts.
