As a hypothetical, what are the bad sides to Lang being dependent on
Logging. It would obviously be nice to have a Lang which logs output.

I would hope that the JDK someday would have good internal logging

However, Logging also might want to depend on Lang. So we have the classic
cyclic dependency. Solutions? Merge?

Anyways. I'm not proposing this, I just want to generate some thoughts..
