So fastlog_util compiles its logging patterns at runtime into a fun,
which does little more than extract certain record fields from the
logging record (which the parse_transform produces) - and replace
their values in the format string. That seemed fairly efficient to me.

I'll have a look at mochiglobal - sounds interesting.
