Actually, a full-on logging module that sits at the top-most level would 
be extremely useful. If we could log the exact set of fs operations that 
causes a bug to manifest (e.g. the Firefox bookmarks bug when /home is 
on GlusterFS that I mentioned, which seems to have disappeared with FF 
3.0.11, but all previous versions exhibit _only_ on GlusterFS), then 
this would make is really easy to produce a test case that could be used 
to reproduce and fix the bug, but also put into the regression test library.
