Some of them I agree with and will make changes when I get the chance. Many of them just need
an explanation or I disagree with the comment - not sure what to do about those. For example,
in Logger -

so adding isEnabled to that interface doesn't make sense.

LogEvent isn't cheap. So it is essential to have global filters operate on the parameters
directly. Of course, all the variations could be paired down but that would require user's
to enter a null parameter where it isn't needed. I prefer to make the interface easier for
the user, not the implementor.

I'm playing by ear, but if there was @doubt that warranted a discussion, then I'd file a JIRA
issue, replace the @doubt with a @issue with the JIRA issue and move the discussion to the
JIRA issue.

"a filter interface" didn't specifically mean the current Filter, just a whole lot of methods
on Logger are related to deciding whether a whether a logging request would be processed and
those conceptually could be isolated into one interface.
