The langauge of those two defcustom forms is quite communicative re:
logging/debugging and do well to extend clarity when informing the user just

tone with any such revisions/additions made to auth-sources defcustom 
related docs.

Its not the amount (or lack thereof), but rather the manner in which the 
occurs and _how_ the user is made aware of bot the existence of such
facilities and the potential pitfalls of their use.
