This is a doc patch, but I'm sending a full pull request because I'm not 100% sure of it.
I tried using this configuration setting in my application, and got
actionpack-3.2.1/lib/action_view/railtie.rb:34:in `block (3 levels) in <class:Railtie>': undefined method `logger=' for ActionView::Base:Class (NoMethodError)
I looked in rails/action_pack/lib/action_view/base.rb and it seems that logger is delegated to ActionController::Base (line 151). Last but not least, ActionView::LogSubscriber.logger uses ActionController::Base.logger directly, with a TODO saying that ActionView needs a logger.
Last but not least, this pull is for 3-2-stable, just in case you might like to add the logger option in Rails 4. I'll be happy to send another pull request for master, if it's desired.
Removed (outdated?) config.action_view.logger from configuration guide.
Yeah. This documentation is wrong. But the in the master branch this options exists, as you can see here 5a6ea53
