Actually, a way just occurred to me immediately after sending this.
The proxy object that holds the stream ref that is the target of op<<
could hold a lock as well. Still, I don't like this idea. I prefer
the current design with its incremental formatting of individual
BOOST_LOG messages in a stringstream with flushing to the appenders
when the message is complete.
