Detailled innfeed logging?

I'm puzzled about it since I've started using INN ...

Incoming articles: innd logs (into the news logfile) in detail which
articles were received, when, from which site, which sites will receive
it or why one was rejected.

Outgoing articles: innfeed as the preferred transmission program is very
silent about its activities. At least in the default configuration
there's nothing more than an a summary in log/news.notice and

At least sometimes I'd like to have a detailled log per remote site. In
a first step this would include the articles rejected by the peer (i.e.
not accepted but not simply duplicate) to debug malformed group patterns
and the like. Even more verbose but sometimes really helpful was the
information when a given article was offerend to a peer and whether it
was transmitted and how the response was.

Did I oversee something in the manpages and the sources? Or is there
nobody else who is interested in such information?
