Hi Andy, thanks for the pointer, and thanks for the advice to read
Dancer2::Plugin::LogReport first. LogReport definitely looks versatile.
I wouldn't use nearly everything it offers, but that's probably true for
them all. Anyone else want to stump for their favorite engine? :)

More generally, it seems like the idea is: pick a log engine, use its
Dancer integration in the Dancer parts of your app, and use the log
engine's native APIs elsewhere. Do I understand correctly?

Aaron Hall           I do quarrel with logic that says, "Stupid people
vitaphone.net        are associated with X, therefore X is stupid."
                     Stupid people are associated with everything.
