I think the resistance against this more has to do with the output being more 
esthetically pleasing (yes I know this is not really a good point for us, but 
in general the cmake output is quite nice) than with "writing to stdout is 
expensive" (which was a joke in the previous thread).

That being said, it probably makes sense to change the default to =1, as it 
definitely helps debugging to see the build commands. 

@infra:
However, please raise the file size limit for bugzilla then, and if possible, 
please fix the use of compressed build logs. Right now, I would not recommend 
uploading a compressed log to bugzilla, because:
* I have not found a way to have firefox uncompress and display it correctly 
with one click (always have to download, save, ...)
* and often files end up double-compressed, i.e. save log.gz, gunzip, rename 
log to log.gz, gunzip :(

Cheers, Andreas
