I don't think that the serious severity is approprate for t his report,
unless it's causing actual data loss (if so, it should be grave). Posts
not getting through to a mailing list is not data loss, if they make it
to the BTS.

(OTOH, users filing installation reports w/o logs and then never
responding to our requests for the logs could perhaps be construed as
data loss. :-)

Geert's idea is a good one. Or we could just disable some logs, for
example, the partman log tends to be about half the total logs; in liw's
report, it was 63% of the complete message. And we rarely if ever use
that log.
