What I propose is a separate package - so that you include the jar
when you just want the interfaces, and both (or just o.a.c.l) when you want
the actual impl.  

Remember, I am coming from the POV that I already have logging (which could
be based on log4j, logkit, system.out.println...) and just want a generic
interface to it.

I don't care about the name.  LogEnabled is fine, but I was keeping the
'LogUser' moniker just so people who saw the first post have a clue... For
the real impl, we'll change it.
