If we have a list of places in Boost where logging may be applied,
perhaps we could compile a set of requirements for such a lightweight
wrapper. When we have it, it would be easier to tell, whether Boost.Log
fits the role or not, or whether the wrapper should be part of it or a
separate submission. I'd be interested to hear from the library authors
on this topic.
