In my previous post I made the assumption that you need to call specific system log APIs (such that it gets fed to the syslog daemon) in order to actually see something in Console.app. 

Or in other words: everything else which goes to stdout or stderr (with qDebug, for instance) does /not/ appear in the system log (unless there was a way to re-route that output to the system log, again with some platform-specific API?), but on the "normal" associated Terminal.

Is that correct?

Cheers, Oliver
