The logging "machinery" isn't that huge nor is it difficult to set up:

import logging

log = logging.getLogger('your.module.name')

and that's all there is to it.

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
