I consider it to be an end user choice. Because if you set the log_group, you 
may need to do a chgrp command to get your logs in order. And I don't know 
who should get access. Would it be wheel or a special audit-view group? To 
me, it just seems like any choice I make may not work for everyone.

But you're welcome to send a patch if you want.
