Thank you for your reply gigs. However, the point of this namespace
harakiri is that existing code which uses 'import logging' ...
'logging.info()'... etc. continues working without any change.
Renaming my logging.py file is not an option -- if it were, i wouldn't
bother naming my module same as a built-in :-)
