Generally people use to sink in their gripes

Well, the part of the unified story that is missing right now is a
tool/servlet that postprocesses these logs and generates HTML out of them
and this would be integrated with the admin tool. Nice idea, I thought.

I guess the people that had logging as their deliverable for beta didn't
have the time to do it :-)

For now, my suggestion would be to make all these logs consistent both in
nomenclature/appearance and where they go -- file or stdout. Much of this
is configurable though, BTW.

Oh I understand :-). 'Tis perfectly okay to stand up and -1 things when you
notice them. It is better that way than never.

Peace, Anil +<:-)
