Maybe I'm missing something, but the code from the example doesn't work
for me:

>>> import logging
>>> logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG,
...                     format='%(asctime)s %(levelname)s %(message)s',
...                     filename='/tmp/myapp.log',
...                     filemode='w')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 4, in ?
TypeError: basicConfig() takes no arguments (4 given)
