Is there a better/simpler logging module?

If you don't want to mess with all this stuff it's easy enough to do:

import logging

logging.warning("my warning")
logging.debug("debug message")

The configuration options are strictly optional.

Personally I use a package I wrote called autolog, which sets up 
configuration from a dot-file in the home directory if it exists, and a 
basic logger for each module automagically. And it does this all using 
the stdlib logging module. :)
