If you can use non-stdlib things there are alternatives. I've heard
good things about logbok (
although I will say I've never tried it myself. I do agree that the
stdlib logging module, while technically powerful, is frustratingly
clumsy to use in all of the relatively simple situations I've felt it
might be helpful to me :-(
