This is an area where "best practices" are really in the eye of the 
beholder. If you believe that there may be utility for your site in 
doing this, give it a try. :)  My advice is that you enable it on a 
Tuesday morning and watch it closely. Depending on the size of your site 
query logs can grow rather quickly.

Really old, definitely needs upgrading.
