[New-bugs-announce] [issue20345] Better logging defaults

New submission from Arne Babenhauserheide:

Currently the default operation of logging prints messages like the following:

INFO:root: Milk found.

This is close to a print-call, but not much more useful - especially not in small scripts. To make the default settings more useful to quick scripts, I would suggest adding the filename and linenumber by default. This would be equivalent to the following setup:

    format="%(levelname)s (%(filename)s::%(lineno)s): %(message)s")

With that setup, the above message would look like this:

INFO (move.py::23): Milk found.
