Logging in general can be useful.

Logging every handler that gets triggered throughout a session less so.

Big logs, performance impairment, only useful if the log gets to the 
developer (and even then sifting through it can be a bear).

Lean usage logs can be good, though.

I tend to use messageMessages logging only when I have a problem I can't 
diagnose through other means.
