I believe you can keep the bucardo schema as is, but of course you should 
test that on a copy of your database.

Greg Sabino Mullane evidently felt that the normal logs should be quieter.

Personally I would probably just use verbose mode and tolerate the extra 
noise, and rotate & compress the logs more frequently if needed.
