this is it?

or like syslog? i tried it few times but was rather disappointed by the
performance. this is more like 'hey, something critical happened' than
for regular full-blown logging. i wonder if it's better on any platform.

of course i will have a look at these, but i do not see any problem as
long as the two interfaces are somehow compatible with mine. i know
syslog, and it can certainly be integrated into it.

it depends. we can always make things complex, but logging is not in
most cases.

well destination==sink, formatter==filter and that's it :) we both made
the same design decision as it seems.
