[Freeswitch-users] Frustrating and inconsistent log format !

Dear FreeSWITCH Developers,

Permit me a modest rant if you may.

Why do log lines start with UUID ?  Its format is hard to define and
subject to the developer's whims ....why not start the line with a
date, like almost any other sane program,  and put the UUID elsewhere

Why on earth is the log format so inconsistent ? e.g.

Sometimes developers feel like giving us a date ....

7d28af7d-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-2e20e2bXXXX 2016-01-13 12:00:47.198394 [DEBUG]

Sometimes they even manage the date in a sensible location ....

2016-01-13 11:58:14.838392 [DEBUG] sofia.c:9124

Other times they can't be bothered to provide such a critical piece of

4891efd5-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-58d153b8XXXX Dialplan: sofia/internal/

Please devs... spend a little time cleaning up the logging ... it
helps debugging and troubleshooting so much if we have some
consistency there !!!!!
