Technically I think you've fixed all the problems I raised.
I really think we should be looking at either a logging library, or
(better) syslog. These problems -- like logfile maxsize, logfile
location, log rotation -- have all been solved before, and I don't
believe we should reinvent this wheel.
I'm keen to hear what others think though.
