/**
 * title: logStruck
 * description: SQlite group/structured logging backend
 * version: 0.1.1
 * api: php
 * type: handler
 * category: logging
 * state: experimental
 * depends: php:sqlite >= 3.7, php >= 5.4
 * autoexec: true
 * config:
 *   { class: var, type: str, name: "ł::$app", description: "default application name" }
 *   { class: prop, type: str, name: "ł()->db", description: "SQLite storage location" }
 * license: Public Domain
 * doc: https://fossil.include-once.org/hybrid7/wiki/log
 * 
 * 
 * Implements a terse but parametric logging API for structured journaling.
 * Primarily meant for userland and application-level inspection.
 * 
 * Uses SQLite as primary storage. Retains process/runtime grouping with
 * tree-style event relationships.  Classifies priority, :section and
 * generator/source.  Common fields are primary keys, while arbitrary and
 * extra values are stored as JSON blobs.  Automatically registers PHP
 * error, exception and assertion handler.  Eschews configurability for
 * alternative storage backends.
 * 
 * Function signatures
 *  · Main logging function is  ł("..")
 *  · Ruby-style ':token' names for priority and section names
 *  · HTTP-style 'field: value' parameters
 *  · Passed arrays stored as JSON blobs
 *  · Interpolation tokens :server, :backtrace, :file, :code, :version, :p
 *  · Calling ł::$PRIO_$MODULE("..") readily sets prio and module etc.
 * 
 * Usage examples
 *   ł(':alert', "No foobar() result")
 *   ł(":warn", ":openid", "No endpoint found", $handle);
 *   ł("Page not found", ':exception', [$pagename])
 *   ł(':alert', "INSERT failed", ':database', $PDO->errorInfo(), ["vars"=>$params])
 *   ł(':assert', "Got #$num args.", ':debug', ":plugin", "\$wiki->add()", $args, "doc: ?tktid=2421")
 *   ł(':emerg', "no space left on device", ':sys', "errno: $errno", ':vars', $fileobject);
 * 
 * 
 * Fields, message strings, data arrays and :tokens may be in any order, but some
 * coherency is advisable of course. Only :section identifiers and :error level
 * tokens should be used prudently.
 * 
 * It's however as important to retain context values where available. Passing an
 * indexed `get_defined_vars()` is most useful. But an unordered [$x, $y] list
 * often allows debugging too.
 * 
 * 
 * Database structure:
 * 
 *    CREATE TABLE log ( 
 *        i INTEGER PRIMARY KEY ASC NOT NULL,  -- log event ROWID
 *        p         INTEGER,             -- associate subevents: parent log event
 *        g         INTEGER,             -- associate subevents: primary group id
 *        timestamp REAL,                -- 1420305717.25732
 *        timestr   CHAR( 19, 20 ),      -- 2015-01-01T22:33:55
 *        pri       INT,                 -- 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7
 *        prio      VARCHAR( 0, 10 ),    -- crit | err | ... | info | debug
 *        source    VARCHAR( 0, 20 ),    -- log | error | assert | exception | errno
 *        errno     INT,                 -- 0..255
 *        host      TEXT,                -- srv3
 *        app       VARCHAR( 0, 64 ),    -- $app
 *        section   VARCHAR( 0, 64 ),    -- $section
 *        file      TEXT,                -- file.php
 *        line      INT,                 -- 125
 *        version   TEXT,                -- file.php version / revision
 *        message   TEXT,                -- ordinary summary text message
 *        doc       TEXT,                -- end-user description / href
 *        backtrace TEXT,                -- JSON
 *        code      TEXT,                -- excerpt
 *        vars      TEXT,                -- JSON
 *        context   TEXT,                -- JSON {_SERVER:{}, ...}
 *    );
 *    CREATE TRIGGER log_group AFTER INSERT ON log
 *     BEGIN  UPDATE log SET g = i WHERE g IS NULL;  END;
 * 
 * 
 * Redundancy of timestamp/str and pri/prio for self-documenting storage;
 * just like `doc` is meant to formalize technical error summaries.
 * 
 * Database keys are also used as internal dict names. Anything that doesn't
 * map will be merged into `context`.
 *
