Notation for Log[b,n]

The expression Log[b,n] evaluates to Log[n]/Log[b].  I would like to
replace this notation as the default with Log[b,n], such that not only
will Log[b,n] evaluate to itself, but such that Simplify,
FullSimplify, etc., will use the form Log[b,n] whenever applicable. 
MakeBoxes is likely the correct function to use, but I don't know how
to implement this change.  Please help.
