Nice to get a reply. Thanks!

Main difference seems to be this is not a 'LogLevel'
oriented Logger, no DEBUG, INFORMATION, WARNING, stuff
here. Just realms and custom tags that eventually can
be filtered/processed/formatted by custom LogListeners.

You can always use "debug", "information", etc. tags if
you want, though.

> Hmmmm, kind of verbose.
Yes and no. You have listeners that can filter and pretty-print
LogEvents, and your Objects may implement "Loggeable" with 
custom not-so-verbose formatting. Better yet, with little
effort we can be able to generate SAX events that would
simplify LogListeners ability to filter selected messages.

> Hmmmm, may create performance problems.
That depends on LogListener(s) implementation(s).
They can implement their own decoupling stuff.
(i.e. OperatorLogListener does exactly that to avoid 
performance problems while sending e-mail).

In some heavy used portions of code you may want to avoid
LogEvent creation if there's no listeners, something like

  if (loggger.hasListeners()) {
    LogEvent logevt = new LogEvent(......);
    Logger.log (logevt);
