    Description

      The current requirements for logging of tools are:

      1. Suppress certain log message (--quiet)
      2. Change whether certain messages are going to stdout or stderr to avoid smashing output going to stdout.
      3. Multiple different log streams (for fatal errors or just informational messages)
      4. Log levels (-vvvv)
      5. Redirect log output to file

      The only things supported by the current server logging framework are 4 and 5.

      The logging framework for the server is currently used in some places in the tools, but only inconsistently since it is not adequate for all cases.

      Also note that the tools are tightly integrated with the server, which means that code in the tools can call into server code that uses the existing logging framework. This is a problem because in some cases the tools want to send log messages only to stderr, which isn't supported right now by the existing logging framework used by the server.
