In my case I have two options:

a) Change my single Log.h header to use a new log facility directly.
That would require a full recompile.

b) Or I could change the implementation my log facilities, at my
Log.cpp. This would not require a recompile as it would only change my

What I don't want to be forced to do is change every instance of
log<*>::*(...) in all my code as it would literally take me weeks to do
it, and to test it.

Not that I'm saying it would not be possible for me to use something
that is macro based. What I'm saying is that it's guaranteed to be
possible to make that switch with a macro-less supporting solution.
