Interesting idea - you mean so that it would provide a  different way for some classes to not log? The issue that would cause for the use I had in mind is that I wanted a global switch so it can be flipped with one preference. I guess that for the current usage I have it would in fact be tolerable for it to be restricted to a small number of classes.

The general case I had in mind though was as a part of the ignore lack of source/changes settings; consider a server image where you want to be able to load updates (rather like the Personal SqueakSource image, as an example) without having a growing changes file. Or, sometihng I tried (and failed ) to do for the Raspberry Pi Scratch project, allowing users to drop a code file to add some new hardware driver; I'll try adding that sometime now this preference is in place.

What I'm not convinced of is whether this completes the job wrt MC loading. Any thoughts?
