I am not really sure what you mean with this, did you use the setLogger
method? Could you post the code you used? I am not entirely sure if that
would (always) work correctly.

The most convenient for me would be if you forked the Jaybird project on
GitHub, create a branch in your fork with the changes and then create a
pull request which I can then review and merge.

These changes would either need to be made in, or if combining streaming
backup with existing server-local backup leads to complex code: in a new
"manager" class.

the future (there are no plans right now, but I like to keep this option
