i use. but i limit number of messages in this channel by additional
tools. you can easily do the same. but first ask yourself - what you
will gain by this? imho, it will only help to smooth temporary speed
changes. if you just want to test whether this can speed up your
program - implement such limited Channel and test whether it works
btw, i suggested you to try not using logging thread entirely, making
all logging actions synchronously

not exactly. they can hold at most one message
i think that your aspiration to make things asynchronous is just sort
of fashion. what you really want to get?
