I like the idea , and for those of us that get paranoid with logs 2
lines like this would really be nice:

- Logging stopped at 2006-03-29 8:00:01 due to lack of disk space.
- Logging resumed at 2006-03-29 23:00:01

Of course the 2nd line has an automatic timestamp but it would be
really nice to know when logging started to fail.

note: the examples were just to show the idea not the format.
