i wonder if we cant just hijack the rc_logger variable

Using the rc_logger option to specify a) a logfile/path and b) enable/disable logging at all could confuse some people. If that is what you meant..

that is what i meant.  *shrug* i dont think it'd be confusing, but i dont feel strongly either way.
