Thanks David for your advice.
So here is some stuff I read from the documentation (.chm):

- "Pantheios is written in C and C++, and presents a C API along with a
C++ Application Layer API."

        Is it a problem?

- "Pantheios is released under the BSD license"

        Is it a problem?

- "Pantheios is dependent on the STLSoft libraries, version 1.9.1 beta
20, or later.

STLSoft provides the following important features:

-Compiler feature discrimination, standard library feature
discrimination, memory utility classes, multi-threading classes and
functions, various TL extension algorithms and iterator adaptors.
-The application layer uses the string access shims defined by the
STLSoft main project and several sub-projects to effect the genericity,
100% type-safety and zero-overhead when not logging.
-The core completely avoids memory allocation when the total extent of a
logged message is less than 2048 bytes by using the highly efficient
stlsoft::auto_buffer component.
-Several stock back ends use STLSoft components for their implementation."

        Is it a problem?

- Wow!! :

I am not an expert in design and in no position in rejecting any library
  or whatever, and I have actually not even look into the code but IMO,
just as reading few pages of the doc, I think pantheios is not what we
are looking for. I would love to be wrong and that someone says,
"pantheios is what we were looking for all those years, let put it into
boost". I doubt it...

Please, someone more experienced have a quick look and tell me I'm wrong.
