Is there any way now to configure my system to have debug logging
generally (I like to keep that on quite often to spot issues etc) but
not spew stuff all over my terminal (especially during tab-complete)?

Is it perhaps just a matter of specifying log_target explicitly too
(although personally I'm less interested in the debug info from the
tools talking to their daemons and more interested in just PID1 debug

It's not a huge deal as I can turn it off generally.
