[development] Disable watchdog globally

Aside from the academic curiosity of it, what possible purpose is there to 
disabling *all* of Drupal's logging and tracking capability?  Certainly not 
performance.  (If you're trying to improve performance that way, you're 
missing something bleedingly obvious elsewhere.)

If you really want Drupal to do *nothing* to help you at all, the dblog and 
syslog modules are, I think, the only core modules to do anything with 
hook_watchdog() so you can just disable those.  

But still, don't do that.  What are you actually trying to accomplish?
