Dear All,

I've decided to port one of my apps to the proposed logging library so
that I can write a review. A couple of issues have come up immediately:

- This program currently logs using syslog. I was expecting to find a
back-end for this logging library for syslog, since it is the standard
logging mechanism on POSIX. But I can't see anything. Am I missing
something, or is it really not there?

- I spent a while trying to work out how to compile the library. I
have now come to the conclusion that it is header-only, and that it's
only the tests and the examples (called "scenarios") that you might
want to compile by following the instructions in the documentation. Is
this right?

  From what I can see so far, using this library is not going to be a
compelling alternative to the concise

#include <syslog.h>
syslog(LOG_WARN,"Blob %d failed to %s",n,x);

Cheers, Phil.
