When logging terminal consoles (which motivated the feature) you don't
really want to log input, since the terminal will echo text back already
and you don't want to expose passwords sent in input either.

None the less I can see the value in logging input too for other use
cases. I could perhaps imagine a logdirection=in|out|both parameter
being added to the -chardev to control this.
