Current logging code is perfectly fine IMO, it would be nice to hear
from the long time Freetype contributors whether they would like to
see it changed. Frankly an opinion from an external developer doesn't
qualify and shouldn't be accounted for at all.

I mean that even if a GSoC student working on adding some functionality
to Freetype (and who apparently was new to Freetype) never complained
about the logging functionality then the logging code is not a problem
at all. That doesn't mean that the logger shouldn't be improved, but
throwing away current implementation is not a very wise decision.

Of course the developer needs to write 5-10 lines of code to make it
possible. That doesn't sound like a huge amount of efforts.
