we use binary logging like that in the libraries-under-construction
Boost.STLdb and .Persistent, and are in the process of uniting that
system to be used by both libraries and potentially other boost

this type of logging has very different requirements than logging some
activity in human-readable form, from performance and data consistency
viewpoints, so I'd like to know if you consider that type of logging
within the scope of a boost logging library, and specifically within
the scope of the proposed Boost.Log.

should I review the library with that use case in mind?
