Code sample for debug commands

The Yesod type class does not seem to expose the "shouldLog" method. The error received when running the code from the sample is: ‘shouldLog’ is not a (visible) method of class ‘Yesod’ The type class does expose shouldLogIO which has the same type signature except that it requires an IO Bool return type. The following change allows the code to run as expected. data App = App instance Yesod App where shouldLogIO App src level = return True Hope this helps some other newbs like myself.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The book was written against Yesod version 1.4. The removal of the `shouldLog` method occurred in 1.6, which was just released. Can you confirm which version of the yesod-core library you're using?
