Well I could make a pull request with a lightweight stream logger that just uses printf internally. The file, header, and log topic features come from the Poco::Logger and that's the part that probably causing problems due to it being in a singleton.

I agree that basic stream output is far faster to use then tons of ofToString and stringstreams ...

Also, I'm sure I can add this functionality without breaking the old ofLog function usage.
