gINI and gLog are thread safe and well tested.  Both use a caching
system that buffers the entries in memory and writes out the data when
the system is idle or the applications quits.  This is very important
for the gLog.  The reason being, logging Visitor activity creates huge
log files and would normally slow the system down if the caching
system was not used.
