Me too, if you read everything I wrote. And you can strike the "probably" for me. That statement was pretty general. That's why I talked about an application-specific interface for special logging and notification purposes. You could place the instance in a thread-local. Probably not all logging needs to be per processing run. But some applications will want specific and ideally parseable info back. Jeremias Maerki
