I'd say that interface is very limited and unsafe. But if you like it,
you can write a wrapper header around Boost.Log in the following style:

void error (const char *format, ...)
   va_list args;
   va_start (args, format);

   char buf[1024];
   vsnprintf(buf, sizeof(buf), format, args);

   va_end (args);

   BOOST_LOG_TRIVIAL(error) << buf;
