It would defeat the purpose of the uploading to some extent. I'm under
the impression that logs have been requested most when they were large.

Also, most of the time, logfiles didn't get requested. That seems to
indicate that uploading them by default is a waste of resources, anyway.

Why not create an option --upload-logs, instead, that causes that
nothing gets done except for uploading the most recent log? This could
get invoked manually upon request (and at times controlled by the test

The current code also seems to create a pile of logfiles on meta-comm's
FTP server. I guess they should get purged automatically after some
(probably short) time.
