Access to deployment error log from the Windows Azure management portal
Since deployment error are not uncommon, and many times you cannot use Remote Desktop in order to view the Windows Azure Log in the instance which constantly keeps recycling, access to the deployment error log from the management portal could save us developers a lot of headache, and a lot of support calls for you MS guys

Agree -- when a deployment or app start problem happens (including endless restart/cycling loops), it's very painful to go digging to try to find out what went wrong. Sometimes one has to look in storage logs, sometimes one has to remote desktop and dig through files local to each server instance, etc. Both the portal and tooling in Visual Studio should provide more detail about what's happening when apps don't deploy or start -- and provide an easier way to get at the full logs.
