1. Commons Configuration logs errors mainly when a configuration is 
loaded or saved. These errors are rare and when they happen, the few 
nanoseconds you might lose with the logging statements are insignificant 
compared to the time spent in the IO operations.

2. I just hope you won't add traces to every method calls.
