It's less trivial than you think, because you need to take into account
log-rolling. This requires your process to accept a signal which causes
you to close and re-open the log file. If logging has been abstracted
into a library, then that either forces the library to futz with the
process's global signal state, or increases the API complexity of the
library.

I'm not saying it's rocket science, just that it's not ten lines of
trivial code.
