Yes, I know about the hack that AR uses to make the Logger format 
friendlier.
The thing is it imposes it's idea of friendliness in a global scale (as 
I remember it was necessary with the 1.8.2 Logger due to the rigidness 
of the format). This seriously gets on my nerves.

How can I reinstate my Logger format and apply it to active record?
It is and it's not really a Rails question, as I only use AR :)
Cheers,
V.-
