8-D	that's quite a different issue!
I very like logging too, but that's no reason to raise an error.
In case that the directory has already been created (by a former run)
it's easy to add a log-message telling you about the situation.
So you have your log-entry and the process needs not to fail/stop.

Could that be a compromise?
