Are you talking about PEP 337 (Logging Usage in the Standard Library) or PEP 391
(Dictionary-Based Configuration For Logging) ? Based on the body of your post
(rather than the title) you would appear to be talking about 391 rather than 337.

PEP 337 is about changing the stdlib to make more use of logging internally.

PEP 391 is about a new configuration approach for logging, using dicts.
