It's ok, but only in some cases. For example, less sophisticated
editors go crazy, when trying to display non-ascii characters. And
when output contains new line symbols and zeroes the log becomes a
I'm not telling that isn't useful (I use it myself from time to time),
just telling that IMHO simple solution isn't enouth (for generic
