Paul,

You are explicitly asking for the logger called
'Jkd.Vor.Utilities.Logger' and using that one logger instance. The use
of:

System.Reflection.MethodBase.GetCurrentMethod().DeclaringType

Is a convenience if you want to copy the same boilerplate code into each
class, however it is just equivalent to pass in the name of the class as
a string.

If you want to have a centralised log factory that returns loggers named
with the name of the previous entry on the call stack then you can write
something that will do that, however it will impose a severe performance
penalty on looking up a logger. I would not recommend doing so unless
you have a very specific issue that cannot be solved another way.

Is there a specific reason why you don't want to define a logger for
each class?

You can configure log4net to attempt to extract the calling method name
and type for each logging event, however this is not guaranteed to work
accurately as the runtime JIT may optimise away methods. This feature is
distinct from the logger name.
