Everything, including /me comments get logged anyway, in Krijn's IRC 
logs.  They just get excluded from the official minutes.  So that's not 
really a valid argument against recording.  But I think the advantages 
of having an audio recording that the scribe, or some other volunteer, 
could use to clean up the minutes afterwards to make them more accurate 
than they currently are, would have huge advantages.  So even if we 
don't end up making the recordings themselves public (though I still 
think we should), having a recording is still valuable.
