That's really smart. Provide log info no one can grep. What program does
one use to search the info.

To me that's not the major problem - any database will have tools to extract
data from it.

The problem comes when things go wrong, when a system crash partially corrupts
data for example. The more complex you make your storage, the less likely you
are of ever being able to extract anything from it. Modern file systems are
good examples of that: terribly nice when they work, but if they fail you can
more or less forget about being able to "undelete" anything.

Logs are nice to have, in the aftermath of a crash
