It is so darned easy to write your own protocols that there's really not much point in reusing like you are attempting to do. Here's a simple example:
Thank you VERY much for all the code, explanation, fish and the rest of the universe!
I propose someone put that as a howto onto the twisted site.
the config syntax of standard logging is just ugly and messy; the config syntax of log4[j|perl|net] ist much more logical. Perhaps someone should write a log4twisted module...
More likely, just a log4python, with sufficient room that
There's a log4py already (http://sourceforge.net/projects/log4py, http://www.its4you.at/english/log4py.html), but it never was as complete as the other log4xs and seems abandoned since 2003 in favour of standard logging.
log4twisted doesn't really require too much. For instance, log4python can use the .next() call to iterate over log entries (when reading from it). twisted code will just use this interface (instead of .dumpEntireLog) to sanely read the log in chunks.
Would be nice, but the natural way in OSS is "if you need it, write it yourself", and I can't start any more projects - Python is only a secondary scene for me, I'm more involved in publishing (newspaper workflow, InDesign, PostScript, PDF, TeX) and religious stuff (Unitarian magazine editor and webmaster).
