I'm somewhat uncomfortable with libraries using logging
to get info to the user of the program using the library
(this does not apply to tracing/debugging).
However, given the potential complexity of the possible
interactions, and the resulting design difficulties,
logging might serve as a sort of stopgap measure until
some other "best practices" emerge.

Recounting all the issues caused by using logging, and
the possible alternatives is some work and requires a new
thread, and I'm too tired to start one now.
