RE: logf enhancements

Hello? This is the internet.
Get ready for people who use non-standard grammar or syntax, either
intentionally or by mistake (you have a typo as well).
I personally consider people who think they're 31337 (aka eLiTe) are
immature, but let them express themselves how they feel anyway.
Note: Jonathan is not the case here. I don't think his mail could be
misinterpreted. Or that he pretends to be 31337.

And in reply to your non-nitpicking question, I don't see a point in
compiling one's patch on all 20+ platform/build combinations.
Once you believe it's working on your platform, get it commited and let the
build server compile it all.
The committer is then supposed to check after a short time that the builds
are all green. We're having a revision control system here, after all.

English is not my mother tongue.

I appreciate the hard work you've done and look forward to the incorporation
of your patch.

However, you indicate that you haven't completed testing yet ("the patch
[...] might not compile without that"; assurance that the patch won't break
compiles wold be reassuring.

Also, it would be easier to appreciate if your email employed standard
spelling and punctuation.

Especially for our colleagues whose native languages are not English,
figuring out "i" ("I"), "u" ("you"), "iv" or "ive" ("I've"), "r"
("are"), "rekon" ("reckon"), "coz" ("because"), "wont" ("won't"), and ",,,"
("..." unnecessary ellipses which should be replaced with
periods) makes understanding your email unnecessarily difficult.
