Why would you want compile time configuration? I agree with one of the
reviewers: in majority of the cases the only things that needs to be defined
at compile time is message/entry type and filter type.
How is it better than :
regular_log my_log( "thresholdlevel=warning;file=abc.txt" );
One thing that might be defined at compile time is level:
log_with_tag<level> my_log( "thresholdlevel=warning;file=abc.txt" );
In general logging should'n use compile time sparcely and prefer interfaces.
The only preformance critical part is filterring. Formatting and destination
optimization are pointless IMO.
