commons-logging looks pretty good. it's got some annoying bugs but i don't 
think that it'll take much to fix them.

i've added support for logging to commons-logging to BeanWriter and 
XMLIntrospector. the logs are named according to their fully packaged 
class name (eg org.apache.commons.betwixt.BeanWriter).  i haven't added 
lots of calls to logging - this just puts the infrastructure in place.

i'll look at that cyclic reference bug fix next.
