Yes, that's what the default logger (Dancer::Logger::File) does.

Hmm, that's an interesting feature, but it's not provided yet by
Dancer::Logger::File. This would be very easy to implement though.

I think the best way of doing that would be as an option.

Do you mean debug messages sent y Dancer's core itself?
