The log_format object would know about errno. Take a look at ACE
http://www.cs.wustl.edu/~schmidt/ACE.html The logging framework in ACE has
built in format specifiers to output the current thread id, errno, etc... I
think it may be of value to provide something similar.
Of course, this is all open to discussion.
