If I can find the time, I'd like to go back and reread our discussions on
this topic when creating commons.

There was some discussion about the sentiment that components shouldn't
generally log, as we wanted to avoid the contruction of a component
framework.  Now we have components that need to log, and built a logging
component to support that.

I haven't looked at the commons logging API, and will do that before voting.
I would imagine that at this point (a day late :) my vote might not amount
to much, but I want to be sure what I am voting on...
