> Currently the only way to get the content of a {{Message}} object is to call its {{getFormattedMessage()}}
method, which returns a String. This requires several temporary objects.
> Proposal: introduce a new interface:
> {code}
> public interface StringBuilderFormattable {
>     void formatTo(StringBuilder buffer);
> }
> {code}
> We can either let {{Message}} extend StringBuilderFormattable, or only let the current
Message implementation classes implement this interface.
> The first option is more elegant: downstream code does not need to use {{instanceof}}
to detect if the formatTo() method is available. The downside is that user's custom Message
implementations need to be modified and recompiled.
> Side note: 
> Having a separate interface for this method has the advantage that client code objects
that implement this interface can be converted to text without allocating temp objects:
> {code}
> // gc-free if currentState implements StringBuilderFormattable 
> logger.trace("my state is: {}", currentState);
> {code}
