Take commons-logging and make it disappear.  Ok, so now you have done
this - you still have this pesky demo class that runs without a
container but you need to log stuff.  So just throw together a console
logger of your own design - i.e. writes something dirty to System.out
inside a class called ConsoleMonitor or whatever.  

You end up delivering the demonstrable solution (that could be used in a
real scenario) but you are not opening up a security hole and will not
be introducing another "dirty api" (there are more than enough of them
out there already).

Cheers, Steve.
