I was kind of irked about that too.  I'm going to file a ticket to make
sure this gets handled.  Really I guess it'd be nice to have a

logDiff => false

option where it'd at least let you know something happened but not what if
it was explicitly listed.  There's other uses for this besides just root
passwords.
