Granite Logger



I am in the process of giving Switchboard as much Granite love as I can
before the imminent 1.0 launch. I believe the way logging works in Granite
right now is pretty broken.

First off, the only logging function Logger actually provides is
notification(), which does not even appear to print any message in my test.
Obviously it should work, and I'll file a bug, but what about other log
levels? Surely it would make just as much sense to have convenience
functions for critical/fatal and debugging errors as well?

Additionally it seems to me that Logger being something of a singleton makes
it massively annoying to log errors in different parts of an application,
where access to the Logger object might not be available. Could/should the
logging system be re-factored to accommodate this, or am I missing
