a) l7d is an abbreviation for localized where the 7 represents that  
number of characters are omitted.  The most common example is i18n  
for internationalization.

b) From reviewing the code it looks like passing null should  
represent no exception and any stack trace formatting should be  
suppressed.  Are you calling Logger.setResourceBundle()?  Using  
l7dlog without setting a resource bundle looks like it could result  
in "null" being output.  Otherwise, see what happens when you do pass  
in an throwable.
