first version was a bloated mess, the second should be small and fast.
Mainly after reviewing ACE and log4c++.
John's work seems to be better in this aspect - i took a quick look
comparing to John's work i'd like to avoid heap allocations, exceptions
and rtti. also i'd like to avoid mutexes, because i consider it
a very heavy hammer. but of course the choice is up to user at the end.
there is a dark side of my approach: the user may not pay at the
runtime, but certainly he'll suffer at compile-time. what you gain
is control of the types passed to logging framework (how many times
we all messed a printf's format and arguments? :)
