why do you route the log to a different thread instead of writing
it directly ? On the one hand you provide macros to be able to
optimize the logger code away if it is not desired, on the other hand
you accept a full context switch (and mutex lock and...) for each single message !

May be, if you want to be fancy and fashionable, you could put this kind of
'strategy' into a trait...
