.. btw of log facility, if I can give a suggestion.. would be nice to
make it more verbose.. eg. when some behavioral exception is taken, eg.
frame comes and some action should be taken, but it is NOT taken (or
vice) .. a message would be nice, the user will understand whats going
on.. typical my example, if a message would have come to logs, eg.
"timeout upstream server- switching to authoritative mode", that would
have helped :) just an idea btw.. :P
