let me revise that - if you turned on the query log and subsequently 
disabled devel.module, you would still pay the performance penalty because 
the variable_get('dev_query', 0) will still be true.

to fix this, we should introduce an uninstall hook and advise module authors 
when they should and should not use it (this is an example of *should use it*).
