IMO gnunet should not re-implement operating system tasks, for several

- logging should be done using the platforms mechanisms to ease the
users' live

- the OS logging subsystem should be able to take care of rotation, disk
exhaustion, what ever,

- implementing all of log-subsystem features again is a huge effort,
waste of (wo)men-power and time

IMHO this is a bad place, as barely nobody would look for logs here,
esp. not in "share".

For Linux it might be worth having a look at how to manage services
under the user's control with a per-user systemd instance [2], including
proper logging.
