#476, #614: Introduced class LogMsg for enhanced logging, migrated all existing warnings and error messages (not the exceptions) to use the new logic. Every log message now has a type (debug, info, warning, error). Applications can set a logging level to determine which messages are processed and supply a custom log message handler at runtime. (Based on a contribution by Simson Garfinkel.)

#476, #614: Simplified LogMsg. It's not quite as elegant as before anymore but should be much more portable and more efficient. (MSVC 7.1 didn't like the original implementation.)
