Probability of "DEFAULT_INDEX" being
macro defined in end user code is very high.

Jason's library allows to have singleton compiled into static library
linked into a DLL whcih is loaded dynamically during session
by EXE. And to do it portably.

He has current code in Sandbox (documentation is being
worked on but he expresses wish to explain what's needed).

Reuse of Singleton library (quite likely to get into Boost
in its second review) would allow to integrate Logger
into wider mesh of singletons

I would like to process result logs with my SW.

I am lazy and would like to have clear markers
of log start and end so the SW is easier.
