In our project we have a supervisor-utility (started first by zcml..)
and some other utilities which creation is logged to this

hope, this helps


def bootStrapSubscriberDatabase(event):
    """initialisation of cron utility on first database startup
    dummy_db, connection, dummy_root, root_folder = \

    madeIkAdmUtilCron = ensureUtility( root_folder, IIkAdmUtilCron,
                                        'IkAdmUtilCron', IkAdmUtilCron, '',
                                        copy_to_zlog=False, asObject=True)

    if isinstance(madeIkAdmUtilCron, IkAdmUtilCron):
        logger.info( u"bootstrap: Ensure named IkAdmUtilCron")
        dcore = IWriteZopeDublinCore(madeIkAdmUtilCron)
        dcore.title = u"IKOMtrol Timer"
        dcore.created = datetime.now(berlinTZ)
