Ah - in that case you know for sure which class you're in (as it won't
be called polymorphically) so you can just use com.foo.MyClass.class
instead of getClass().

We personally use a logfile name of ${logfile} and set a system property
depending on the configuration. That way no-one (including customers)
needs to change the properties files under normal conditions (we ship 3
of them, one for each of "quiet", "verbose", or "troubleshooting"
operation, and have a mechanism to pick between them).
