Good question.

I had to think about it again why I wanted this. And it is because I
want to have a 'global' logging system available. But the application
has to implement it.

ie: I want to be able to log something in some fcl-units, without
knowing what kind of application there's running.
So that all applications can implement their own logging-system.

But that's also possible with a new global instance of some class which
can be overridden (and set) by applications. But that's a lot of work,
so I think adding it to the TCustomApplication is a good idea. (?)
