Of course. And to be honest I also abused this once to debug a problem
with Korean LaTeX documents. I used the debian-history project IIRC (no,
I have not done same forbidden tasks, but I copied some teTeX config
files to stdout, checked the public Log and was able to solve the
problem this way). I would of course prefer a simpler (and more legal)
way to debug such problems :-)
