I wouldn't say I am more experienced but I will say that I also looked
at pantheios when it was first suggested.
It seems to be unnecessarily complex and introduces yet another library
which I do not want or need.
I believe you will have an extremely hard time making a logging library
that pleases everyone.
You can please some of the people some of the time but you cant please
all of the people all of the time.
I hope we can come up with something that will be acceptable to enough
people to make it into boost soon.
