Two points here;
1. here was a disussion of splitting logging into 'api' and
  implementation jars but I don't know what's with this idea;
2. it's compile-time dependency rather then runtime;
I'm also concerned about recompilation of the code.
Note that official release of component comes in source and
binary (compiled) version. And sometimes recompilation may
make code different (OK, I know, in most cases it's J2SE1.4
problem with StringBuffer.append(StringBuffer) but...).
