I just read the entire documentation of your logging library - it sounds
very good! I didn't write any code and didn't use your library yet but
will definitely do. So far I've only one question regarding
I understand that this macro is used to help developers not to violate the
ODR. Having read the entire documentation I'm a bit surprised though that
it's used everywhere by default (like in the tutorial). I would expect
that by default developers can define a global logger with

src::severity_logger_mt lg;

_unless_ they violate the ODR. _Then_ they can use
BOOST_LOG_DECLARE_GLOBAL_LOGGER. Either I missed something and I always
should use BOOST_LOG_DECLARE_GLOBAL_LOGGER or the library author (you :)
thought that developers too often violate the ODR without noticing and
better always use the macro even if it isn't really necessary?
