No, I do not want to replace the function fprintf (stderr,...)
But I want to replace all the occurrences in base with a custom logging

I want this becuase in our application (on windows) stderr is not a nice
place to log errors to.  Gui applications normally do not like errors of
one of their libraries to go to stderr.

And also, it makes the base library logging functionality more
consistent if all the logs appear in one place.  At the moment
it depends if the log is generated by NSLog or fprintf.

Note I talk only about the base library.  What you do in your application
is up to you.  And I would also strongly object if base would redefine
standard libc functions like fprintf.

Hope, this is OK with you.  If you still have any objections I would 
like to hear them.
