But, if you use static, you can access the log both ways.

In Wicket, fields of your pages/components are serialized.  This is
just an example.  What about entity classes?  They're usually
serializable too.  Having a field that's a Log object would break
their serialization.  What I'm saying is that there are lots of cases
where using an instance variable doesn't work.

Trust me, I'm speaking from experience.  We've seen in our application
where switching from instance to static logs can save quite a bit of
time.  It's not a premature optimization.
