I suspect our messages crossed paths in mid-stream, but I actually
realised I was wrong on that front - the behaviour already provided by
logging.basicConfig is the better way to go. The missing piece in the
story of "how do I create X kind of output" is plain old vanilla print
statements and similar direct writes to sys.stdout. The logging module
is a tool to track what is happening in a program, not a tool for
providing a console based UI.
