I think it's quite suited to the problem, yes.

One question : why does the exception() method call Logger.error() rather than
Logger.exception() ?

One suggestion : pass in a Logger object rather than a logger name to the
LoggerAdapter constructor. (this also means that users could stack LoggerAdapter
objects if they wanted to)
