How would exception stack traces be handled? That's an important
consideration because a stack trace is the first thing people ask for
when someone has a problem. :-)
I like the idea of one line per entry, but stack traces don't seem to
fit into that format. If you collapse a stack trace onto one line,
it's a lot harder to read. If you keep the multi-line format for stack
traces, you keep the same problem with log analysis practices that
work on a line oriented basis.
