Wow. I never realized you could do that. Apparently I'm not the only one.
I think it is mainly a problem with the documentation. My personal
experience: I found that on the top-level logging module documentation
there's about 2.5 pages of text that seems to go on and on in much more
detail than I wanted for a simple use case. So I look for an example.
Aha! There's a "basic example" page. But the "basic example" given in
the docs has 7 lines of setup before I can even add something to the
log. I always assumed that most of that was necessary.
I personally have found the logging module very useful when I have used
it. Now that I know how easy it is to get access to the root logger I'll
use it a lot more!
