It seems a bit strange to have the platform logger support this but not
SimpleFormatter. Do you think there would be any compatibility concerns
if SimpleFormatter were changed to emit one line output? If not then it
might be simpler to change it along with the platform logger so that
this property isn't needed. If there is a concern then an alternative it
to change the platform logger so that it emits the one-line output by
default as it's only used in the platform.
