I'll just explain what confuses me:
* Stripped logger library is bigger than any other Boost library.
* Logger library contains implementation of call_once, thread local
storage, atomics, nonblocking queues... IMO it is not the right place for
that functionality. It must be merged with Boost.Thread, Boost.Atomic and
other Boost libraries if Boost.Log implementation is better.
* Non-stripped Boost.Log bloats binary installer *much* more than any other
Boost library.

If none of that rings a bell, then I'm slightly insane and totally wrong =>
I'm sorry.
But otherwise please address those issues and fix them.

Best regards,
Antony Polukhin
