Updated the document an implementation to reflect every suggest for I
replied to with the exception of providing a format parameter for
thread name. Should have that ready later today. Let me know if I
missed anything. API changes:

1. Dropped log!info("message"), etc. Use info("message), etc.
2. opCall now alias to format. Ie. info("Format %s message",
    this means that to concatenate strings you need to
info.write("Hello ", "world");
