That would work, but I have a few problems with it.
- We would need to copy their code (and hence create two diverging
versions) because it has dependancies
- It adds an extra 3 layers to every log call, also has extra logic
- a logging system should do all of the targetting things itself (instead
of having an interface with multiple targets to an interface with multiple
targets that writes the logging)
- I want to avoid having extra code that only adds complexity

I think we have a fundamental problem of choice (which the projects
themselves should work out).
