That's why you would call LogFactory.getLog() only once, at init time.
Most projects are using a static field - and the cost is minimal.

That may only happen if you have multiple logger implementations and 
a strange configuration.

Well, that may conflict with what we are trying to do in tomcat - i.e. 
allow central configuration ( probably JMX based ) of the loggers. 
Also creating a hook and configuration for axis logging factory may 
conflict with the container hooks and configurations.

There are ongoing discussions with Ceki and on tomcat-dev on how to 
deal with the logging and log configuration.
