This seems like the best approach to me. We can't turn off the
logging in the BD or we lose the ability to restore in the case of a
catastrophic failure. We still want some kind of streaming, just so
we don't have to keep the whole thing in memory at a time. This seems
like a reasonable compromise.

I agree, but I think it should be possible to find a compromise.
