My problem with piped loggers is there is no fast way to make sure you 
have a "complete" line.  This is especially hard when you buffer the logs.

Think of a situation where the piped logger is supposed to write to a 
socket, for example.  If the piped logger has the ability to "fail over" 
  to another socket, there is a great chance that you may get partial lines.

Our general policy is that we cannot loose any log lines. period.  So, 
we have to be a little creative and many of the common solutions can be 
rather "lossy."
