I do.  Perhaps I'm trying to be too Pythonic, but there's so much advice
out there about using getLogger(__name__) in Python code, rather than
hardcoding the name.  I've been trying to follow that pattern in my
extension module.

Right.  I have that in my module init function, but how do I access that
later in one of my extension functions?  The only thing I can think of
would be to save it in a static variable, but static variables seem to
be a no-no in extensions.
