Clearing out handlers in logging?

The current (2.7; maybe 3.x?) logging module doesn't have any sort of
"clear out all the current handlers" method. I can hack it by doing
log = logging.getLogger() # get the root logger
del log.handlers[:] # reach inside and nuke 'em
log.addHandler(...) # install the one(s) I want
but it feels a little dirty to reach into logging.root.handlers since
there are other methods for adding/removing handlers. However, as
best I can tell, to remove a handler, you already need to have it
Is there a better way to do this, or do I just suck it up and deal
with the (potentially thread-ignorant, as it doesn't lock) hack?
