  We're re-visiting all of this in v4.  So much of the logging is already deprecated.

  I would say instead to log by packet types, it's a little clearer:

	auth - turn on *all* logging for accept/reject
	auth_accept - turn on logging only for accept
	auth_reject  - tuen on logging only for reject

  It should be a relatively tiny patch.
