Well, I am under impression that Andrey's solution is somewhat different
from what I have in mind. Although I must say my implementation is fairly
conventional -- a logger (like boost::log) is actually a handle/proxy with
pointer semantics, like


Internally, I maintain a name/logger map and, when

    boost::log log(name);

is requested, I simply return another reference/handle to the respective
internal logger implementation (here it seems to differ from Andrey's). If a
logger with the requested name does not, I create one.
