In 2001, we used it and then abandoned it for two main reasons:
1. There was at least one bug in about R7 which made binary_to_term()
crash the entire VM for some input. This made _reading_ logs after
a power failure dangerous.
2. We had very limited space (less than 1 MB) for logging in earlier
generations of our hardware. text logging + trunc_io (now in
lager) + gzip gave us more log-per-MB than binary logging
(without gzip; AFAIK it's not an option).
The logging system we ended up using is completely home-made.
