That would solve that use case handily; if that's the right approach,
such a handler should be provided as part of the standard set of
The use case for a .setlogger() method on the various objects that
perform logging is different, so that is still needed.
Generally, I'm not convinced that a getdefaultlogger() is needed or
helpful (it seems an implementation default for the module), though
I'm not at all opposed to the setdefaultlogger() for the affected
