That was actually very easy to do. But that's not what I wanted to do.

What I tried to do was to get any functionality in the Dancer::Logger to do
it. I tried the abstract, and the console (which explicitly prints), but
none of them were able to turn the NV to PV in my code. In fact, they had
not changed it at all. The returned the same exact results.

As usual, you out-researched us all. :)
