If you mean literally one output stream/file where the code is at the
front and the log is at the bottom... Now in order to figure out why line
245 was changed I have to jump to another point in the file, read that, and
jump back. I can't see the code and the log message at the same time. :(
There has to be two separate streams of information so I can see the
code and the reason simultaneously.
