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.
