That's an interesting idea - a flag to dsm('', '', $persistent) that 
would a) watchdog() the message, b) display the text on every page with 
a "hide message" that the user could manually click on to hide it later. 
Persistent messages would be logged in the watchdog log.

The potential problem with this, however, is to /whom/ the message is 
persistent. If five people are admins, and one enables a certain module, 
dsm() would traditionally persist the message only to the enabler (since 
they're all stored in $_SESSION, of course).
