Hex dump is useful, absolutely, but so is a database access library, but
we don't wish it would be a part of the log library, do we? This may be
a rough analogy, but as several stated, text formatting of data
structures is something that a log *uses*, not *implements*. Sorry for
butting in like this, but I strongly feel that hex dump is out of scope
for a logging library, and would waste John's precious time, while he
could spend it on something that belongs to logging.
