Okay, I've tried this. It doesn't work, because glob2 just renames
the .log files to .log~ and creates new ones.
It does work to remove write permission on the ~/.glob2/logs
If I do this, then glob2 stops making log files and instead spews all
of that data to stdout. It is enough to redirect stdout (not stderr)
to /dev/null to get rid of this.
