I think these are good ideas. As developers we often use COM_errorLOG for
debugging output and I think that is become a problem and often leaves
spurious non-error related outout in that log which can only confuse a user.

I've introduced a notification.log file with glMessenger and maybe we should
have a debug.log file.
The logic would check for the existance of the file and if not there
doNothing() else logEntry().

In my case, I also wrote a small block that I only see so I can tail the
notification log and watch my site activity. During debugging, having a
Centerblock doing a tail on the debug.log file may be handy.

If I knew there was a standard COM_debugLog(), then I'd convert any of my
code to use that.
