ENH: Use Python logging framework for scripted module logging

Use Python's built-in logging module to manage logging. A direct advantage is that line number, file name, method name can be logged, too. Also, it follows the convention of using qt-style logging in qt classes, vtk-style logging in vtk classes, etc.

Default behavior of log levels: DEBUG: log to application log only, includes file name, line number, thread INFO: log to stdout (appears in application log, too) WARNING: log to stderr (appears in application log, too) ERROR: log to stderr (appears in application log, too)

Usage: logging.debug("this is a debug message")"this is an info message") logging.warning("this is a warning message") logging.error("this is a error message")

TODO: once context.setFile() wrapping is implemented in this line should be uncommented to enable logging of path name: context.setFile(record.pathname)
