You may want to think of functor hooks in general.

Before opening a file, check if we want to reuse an existing one and
allow end-user defined formatting of names. After closing a file, check
if compression is needed. After getting a log event, run a custom
filter to throw stuff away by content. Before accepting a log event,
check if the sender has been flooding you. Aggregating of data might be
helpful (last message was repeated x times, instead of logging a
sequence of events combine them to one log event if they occur within
some time window).
