Start-Transcript logs input and output. This creates huge log files.
There should be a switch that enables Start-Transcript to only log the inputs and omit the outputs. Optionally, there could be an indicator whether a command completed successfully, was aborted or raised an exception.

+1 for flag to omit headers.

My Boxstarter script is reboot resilient so subsequent scripts must restart transcription, but don't need to repeat the header.

Also filters to record or discard STDOUT & STDERR would be great, allowing users a lot of flexibility with ease.

And a switch to omit the prompts from the transcript.
