I just released a couple of days ago a python log handler extension that allows storing LogRecords and instrumentation coming directly from Python standard logging framework. The handler is also easy to integrate with DJango and it provides all extra instrumentation such as connection with DB backends.
Project is released under Apache 2 license with releases available from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/CMRESHandler . Source and project, for anyone who is interested to make contributions (or just use it !!) at https://github.com/cmanaha/python-elasticsearch-logger.
