By smooth you mean non backwards compayible and will break your existings 
systems ? ;)

I am fairly anti such a move. I would much much much prefer something like 
the following. This is binary compatible and will not force me to go through 
and change oodles of stuff.

interface LogAware
 void enableLogging( Logger );

class abstract AbstractLogAware implements LogAware {}

I really don't think we should be breaking binary compatability in such a 
fundamental interface in a supposedly stable library.
