Could you elaborate a little here? Are you implying that the configurability
of the logging library does not extend to the behaviours described above?
Or that some canned filters might be provided by the library to ease the
pain of implementing those behaviours?
Or are you after something more explicit, i.e. the formalization of the
logging data say, into columns, and the ability to test presented messages
by reference to those columns?
