Well, standard mode of operation is to redirect everything to stderr,
and you can't really change it without custom handler, since you'd like
it to output into, well, custom location :). That goes for separate
files as well as redirecting to syslog().

Yes, Glog follows the same design logic -- there is default location,
and if you want something else, install your own handler. I guess we
could provide some standard extra handlers out of the box, you'd need to
give detailed requirements for them, so someone can code it.

Seems like I misread you. Disregard that part :)
