Simple.  Most people will not look at the logs until something breaks,
so it may be months before they need the log files, and at that point
they don't have any.  Better to make part of the upgrade include
making a conscious decision as to how you want the logs to be stored,
whether done by the user personally, or by the packagers that bundled
it up for the user.

There is no need for extra command line arguments to tell you "you
need to change this" when it will be obvious (and documented).  This
is where RTF(ine)M comes in handy :)
