Hi,
Currently, there is no support for whether the logger object is present or not. 
when logging module imported in current namespace all logger object get imported. which uses the memory.
Add the option explicitly to delete the logger object.

e.g logging.deletLoger("name for logger object")

Hi

Loggers are static objects managed by the module itself. When you create one, it won't be removed until you leave the shell

all logger instance is stored in this location.
"Logger.manager.loggerDict" which is the dictionary.
we can delete logger instance using that dictionary.

so why don't we give the support for deleting the logger object?

Scenario:-
I am writing the one Django project which consists produce the number of logger object depending on the requirement to store the log properly. Currently, I am using "Logger.manager.loggerDict" to delete unnecessary logger object using this dictionary. Currently, i have written code which deletes the parent to child logger object depending on their name. Storing those unrequired logger object in the current namespace is better to delete the logger object explicitly.
