Hmm, another good catch. It looks like I did remove the logging
unintentionally. I guess we need to incorporate that back in.

HOWEVER, I'd like to hear opinions on this. I always thought it was a
dirty hack to throw this stuff to pacman.log, which previously was a
very clean and machine-parseable log file. Its now a big steaming pile
of crap, in my opinion. I propose that we log these messages to a
separate file, with some date stamps incorporated. Any objections?
