The problem with that formulation of the feature request is that it would require the math.log function to recognize rationals, or at least the Fraction type. Since the numeric tower and the fractions module are implemented in pure Python that would be somewhat problematic.

I think people who work a lot with fractions and want to compute their logarithm just need to use the formula that the OP gave.
