Not really, NSLog has two properties that prevents it of being used 

* It takes an NSString as first argument.
* It uses locking to make the output consistent
* It adds a timestamp to the output.

The first one is a problem, it assumes that the NSString class is
working correctly.
This means that in tricky situations, like when loading base,
or when detataching a new thread, you can not really use it.

But I agree, that NSLog should be used when possible.
But as far as I know this is already the case, so we are
talking about only a few occurrences of fprintf.
