Using logging module for conditional nested logs

I am getting started with your logging module and I went through the
tutorial and know-how to create a top-level 'root' logger with the
I have a number of functions,say,
foo1() # foo2 calls foo1
and I know how to connect each of these functions to the 'root' logger
by doing something like
logger = getLogger('root.foo1')
but I want to arrange it so that foo1 adds to the logfile that foo2 is
using ONLY when foo2 calls foo1. In other words, if I do
logger = getLogger('root.foo2')
logger = getLogger('root.foo2.foo1')
it responds to the 'root' logger when I want it to respond to *any*
logger that is attached to foo2.
Then, the question is how can I set up foo1 to log to whatever logger
foo2 is using. The purpose of doing this is that I am interested in
capturing when and by whom foo1 is called in whatever logger foo2 is
using. So, if I attach a separate logger to a third function, say, foo3
(), then I can avoid reporting those instances when foo3 calls foo1.
I hope that made some sense.
