Switch branches/tags

Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Since log is already responsible for managing its own buffers
it is unfortunate that it calls fmt.Sprintf, which allocates,
only to append that intermediate string to another buffer.
Instead, use the new fmt.Append variants and avoid the allocation.

We modify Logger.Output to wrap an internal Logger.output,
which can be configured to use a particular append function.
Logger.output is called from all the other functionality instead.

This has the further advantage of simplifying the isDiscard check,
which occurs to avoid the costly fmt.Print call.
We coalesce all 6 checks as just 1 check in Logger.output.

Also, swap the declaration order of Logger.Print and Logger.Printf
to match the ordering elsewhere in the file.
