On a related note: If you would like to log stuff into a global logging
facility without echoing to the client, there's now a plugin I wanted to
release the next days: WPsyslog. It's already finished, it's only some
organisational issues that keep me from releasing.

You can download it from:

Invoke it anywhere in your code by calling
wpsyslog('module', 'Error Message', [optional parameters]);

It will put your message in a database, and you can read the log table
on a separate page.

All further info is in the package (readme.txt and doc/specs.html).

Have a try and let me know what you think. The official release will be
in a couple of days.
