[New-bugs-announce] [issue34307] NullHandler init refusing arguments

New submission from Romuald Brunet <romuald.brunet at gmail.com>:


I'm using a custom Handler that relies on a third-party library that may not be present

  from acme.logging import CustomHandler as BaseHandler
except ImportError:
  import logging.NullHandler as BaseHandler

class MoreCustomHandler(BaseHandler):
  def handle(self):

The logging configuration has some arguments for the CustomHandler. The problem is that the NullHandler does not accept them.

I expected it to be a "dummy" handler that might accept any argument
