Uh. It can't be *blocking*. Writing to a log file is fine. Writing to a
socket would block, so don't do that. Using a Deferred doesn't magically
make it not block.

You can use it, sure, or whatever library you want, as long as they
don't block. In fact you can hook up logging to t.p.log too if you want
(log.addObserver with a little glue function.)
