    Interesting work, I was going to implement for but your idea seems quite useful. I would remove logrus, as logs should be created by the implementation, not the library (or at least that's what a think)

    You have a point there, maybe releasing a v1.0 is not that crazy at all, it's much easier to type import "" indeed
