my goodness, we will drive the video surveillance industry out of business.

every 2 years I itch to separate mlogger into two parts - data logger
and history logger.

but then I remember that the "I" in MIDAS stands for "integrated",
and "M" stands for "maximum" and I say, "nah..."

(I guess we are not maximum integrated enough to have mhttpd, mserver
and mlogger to be one monolithic executable).

There is also a line of thinking that mlogger should remain single-threaded
for maximum reliability and ease of debugging. So if we keep adding multithreaded
stuff to it, perhaps it should be split-apart after all. (anything that makes
the size of mlogger.cxx smaller is a good thing, imo).
