I have a couple of problems with the 'logging' module in the python

Specifically, I have the following problems:
1.) lack of "(func)" tag for inserting function/method name in the log record
Ok, everyone mentions this, so might as well get it over with
2.) logging.config _disables_ all existing loggers when loading a new
Can't break logging configs down into small, bite-sized pieces
(e.g. 1 file per module, 1 file per script, etc.)
3.) Can't _STOP_ propagating a log message after it's handled
'propagate' has no concept of 'propagate until someone deals with this'.

if they have already been proccessed
4.) Crufy config file syntax
This is the ConfigParser modules 'fault'. But it still results
in nasty config files for
Those are my biggest problems - anyone know of a logger that improves
these points ??
