Brian just reminded me that in the main IPython code, we already have
the start of proper logging support.  If you look in
IPython/core/application.py, line 133, you'll see the logging
initialization.  This is currently mostly used only by the
engine/cluster code, but Brian did already put in the right
architecture, so have a look at that code and the formats it uses for

Brian, what's a good part of the code to see examples of how to use it
in action?
