[torqueusers] Location of accounting logs

I am curious.
It seems odd that the accounting logs are in the
/var/torque/server_priv/accounting directory rather than something like
/var/torque/server_logs/accounting
I notice that the accounting directory is world readable, but the
server_priv directory above it needs to be world-executable to allow
folks to actually see the logs.
Is it bad practice to allow the accounting info out when a user wants to
do a tracejob?

I went ahead and did a 'chmod 751 server_priv' so the logs are readable
now. Shouldn't that be the default? Or put the accounting logs in
server_logs instead?

Just a noob's curious observation
