Right. I didn't say the path has to be hard-coded in the source.

@addlogging(config.logfile or default_logfile)
def function(x, y, z):

In production code, I'd probably pass a logger instance rather than a file name.

But in any case, its only a programming exercise, not meant to be
production-ready code.
