Comment(by kevan):

 First, note that the log file that inspired this ticket is here:
 http://allmydata.org/pipermail/tahoe-
 dev/attachments/20081222/20cc919e/attachment-0001.html

 The tahoe-lafs code itself, unless I'm missing something, doesn't ever
 print the introducer_furl to a log. I notice that there's one exception in
 there with a censored furl; perhaps that's an artifact from how things
 were then, or something that foolscap is doing? I'll look into that more
 thoroughly later.

 I do notice that the storage server furls are also censored in the
 motivating log file. I don't mind having them there in my log files, and,
 as Zooko points out in that thread, censoring too much makes the log files
 less useful. Maybe this can be a configuration switch -- if paranoid
 logging is turned on, then IP addresses, storage server furls, storage
 indices/verify caps are censored somehow, and if not they aren't.
