OK, I understand.  I will then just leave it unchanged (3 days of logs).
For the same reason, I will not enable by default the new parameter for
posting-account; it may have undesirable privacy impact.  It for instance
gives for my posts:

Injection-Info:; posting-account="julien"; posting-host="";
	logging-data="14202"; mail-complaints-to="xxx"

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.  They are of course pretty much

> As always, thank you for the tremendous work you do for INN!
