Perl Equivalent of Python logging?

QM has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm working in a dual Perl/Python shop, developing some base classes in both. I'd like the libraries to be as similar as possible (within reasonable effort).

Python's logging facility is used for logging. Is there something in Perl (e.g., CPAN) that does something similar? I need a reference to the logger object in the parent object, and be able to call different log level methods (debug, info, etc.) I don't need the full Python logging capability (which seems quite extensive).

If not, I'll adapt something like Log::Message, or roll my own.

Update: adding link for Python logging class.

    I have had good experiences with Log::Log4perl. It comes out of the box with multilevel logging (warn/error/debug/etc) ready to roll and is very customizable.

      I've had a peek, and Log::Log4perl looks like a good fit.
