To be fair, most einfo and elog messages are useless spam. When elog
was introduced, it was supposed to be only for *important* messages,
but nearly everything sent to it now is a waste of users' time.
Perhaps the solution is to implement an ethisisimportanthonestlog
function, and require developers to get approval before using it, as
per news items.
