in reply to RFC: Log::Painless

...It came down to the fact that I wanted something in-between for certain applications, and which satisfied the goals above.
You may have already considered this, but your module is very similar to Log4perl's :easy mode, so much so that maybe you should consider subclassing Log::Log4perl for your implementation.

What's the easiest way to use Log4perl?

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

    Hm. After almost a year of using Log::Log4Perl, I never noticed the :easy mode. Interesting, thank you.

    When I first looked at the doc you linked, I thought "yes, I should just subclass this." I mentioned it to a personal friend of mine, though, and was reminded how often my Perl code ends up linked into Windows EXEs and PAR files; perhaps it's best to not require the fairly large Log::Log4Perl and dependencies unless I actually need its power.

    So, it looks like I have a fork before I have a release: I put the creation of Log::Log4Easy, which will be a Log::Painless style interface to the :easy mode of Log::Log4Perl, on my to-do list. Fortunately, I have a temporary excess of round tuits, so expect another RFC in the next couple of weeks.
