Good point. I think for the start the usual debug-logging to stderr should
suffice. If somebody is interested in a filelog, then he should just pipe it 
there. As for java, the ocl provides a simple logger capable of logging to a 
file or to stderr with four log levels (DBG,INF,WRN,ERR). It is optimized for
minimal synchronization, such that it should be nearly no harm to performance.

Kind regards
