The logging library has never guaranteed that it wouldn't interleave or duplicate buffered io output when fork() in involved.  We should not start trying to claim that it does.  Too complicated and fragile.  It can't.  Users who want that should implement their own single logging handler that is well behaved in whatever regards they need.  there are a ton of options for them.

A basicConfig setting to switch the mode of operation to a single lock instead of per-handler locks could only happen in 3.8 (new feature).  I'll ponder if it is even feasible to add that after the re-init change goes in.  Even with such a feature, library user authored Handler subclasses would always be free to violate that.  We can't protect people from themselves.
