SVK::Logger - logging framework for SVK
use SVK::Logger; $logger->warn('foo'); $logger->info('bar');
use SVK::Logger '$foo'; $foo->error('bad thingimajig');
SVK::Logger is a wrapper around Log::Log4perl. When using the module, it imports into your namespace a variable called $logger (or you can pass a variable name to import to decide what the variable should be) with a category based on the name of the calling module.
Ideally, for support requests, if something is not going the way it should be we should be able to tell people: "rerun the command with the SVKLOGLEVEL environment variable set to DEBUG and mail the output to $SUPPORTADDRESS". On Unix, this could be accomplished in one command like so:
env SVKLOGLEVEL=DEBUG svk <command that failed> 2>&1 | mail $SUPPORTADDRESS
