I don't want to discuss if isDebugEnabled() is not as efficient as
debug() - but I really guess it is.
The reason for the change above is simple, it's a) consistent and
b) if you change the log message and add some dynamic information the
extra check is there and cannot be forgotten.

This is really a problem, because we agreed a long time ago do to the
extra checks. Take a look at the code, there are still places where
the extra checks are not done as not all of us really care about this.

Hmm, I cannot remember anything like this, sorry. (weak mind perhaps?)
