// Description:
// LoggingTextView and logln() is a println() replacement to display logs on screen
// Suitable to debug stuffs when the debugger cannot be attached in some situation
//
// Usage:
// Subclass any UITextView to LoggingTextView, and replace your println() to logln()
// Now all logs will go through that text view.
//
