I've been wondering this for a while. Why are we not leveraging existing
logging (syslog) methods? I know the answer is probably yet another
dependancy, as well as additional overhead. However, it has the
possibilty of simplifying the code as far as I can see (well, after the
initial pain, of course)... Just an idea. I'm not sure if or when I'll
get time to do it, if anyone likes the idea.
