#158: Logging in SimFactory
 Reporter:  eschnett    |       Owner:  mthomas
     Type:  task        |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  critical    |   Milestone:         
Component:  SimFactory  |     Version:         
 Keywords:              |  
 The logging facility in SimFactory is supposed to keep track of all
 actions performed on a simulation. That is, there needs to be exactly one
 log file per simulation. It is not necessary to have a log file within the
 Cactus source tree, since this file could go away at any time, and is not
 connected to any simulation.

 The log file should be created when a simulation is created. Only
 important actions -- actions that potentially modify the state of the
 simulation -- should be logged. For example, if a new restart is created,
 or if a restart is stopped, or if a simulation is archived, then this
 should be logged. If a simulation is only examined, then this should not
 be logged.

 Python has a convenient logging facility. This should be used if possible.
