     * The string format seems to be very common to those developers who have used a standart sprintf function.
     *
     * Log output format is a simple QString with the special markers (starting with % sign) which will be replaced with
     * it's internal meaning when writing a log record.
     *
     * Controlling marker begins with the percent sign (%) which is followed by (optional) field width argument, the
     * (necessary) single-letter command (which describes, what will be put to log record instead of marker, and an
     * additional formatting argument (in the {} brackets) supported for some of the log commands.
     *
     * Field width argument works almost identically to the \c QString::arg() \c fieldWidth argument (and uses it
     * internally). For example, \c "%-7l" will be replaced with the left padded debug level of the message
     * (\c "Debug  ") or something. For the more detailed description of it you may consider to look to the Qt
     * Reference Documentation.
     *
     * Supported marker commands are:
     *   \arg \c %t - timestamp. You may specify your custom timestamp format using the {} brackets after the marker,
     *           timestamp format here will be similiar to those used in QDateTime::toString() function. For example,
     *           "%t{dd-MM-yyyy, HH:mm}" may be replaced with "17-12-2010, 20:17" depending on current date and time.
     *           The default format used here is "HH:mm:ss.zzz".
     *   \arg \c %l - Log level. Possible log levels are shown in the Logger::LogLevel enumerator.
     *   \arg \c %L - Uppercased log level.
     *   \arg \c %F - Full source file name (with path) of the file that requested log recording. Uses the \c __FILE__
     *           preprocessor macro.
     *   \arg \c %f - Short file name (with stripped path).
     *   \arg \c %i - Line number in the source file. Uses the \c __LINE__ preprocessor macro.
     *   \arg \c %C - Name of function that called on of the LOG_* macros. Uses the \c Q_FUNC_INFO macro provided with
     *           Qt.
     *   \arg \c %c - [EXPERIMENTAL] Similiar to the %C, but the function name is stripped using stripFunctionName
     *   \arg \c %m - The log message sent by the caller.
     *   \arg \c %% - Convinient marker that is replaced with the single \c % mark.
     *
     * \note Format doesn't add \c '\\n' to the end of the format line. Please consider adding it manually.
