Python logging settings for root logger
"""
Settings for root logger.
Log messages will be printed to console and also to log file (rotated, with
specified size). All log messages from used libraries will be also handled.
Three approaches for defining logging settings are used:
1. using logging classes directly (py25+, py30+)
2. using fileConfig (py26+, py30+)
3. using dictConfig (py27+, py32+)
Choose any variant as you like, but keep in mind python versions, that
will work with selected approach.
First method works on most python versions.
Description can be found here:

Avaliable logging.Formatter format args can be found here:
http://docs.python.org/2/library/logging.html#logrecord-attributes
