Speaking from the java side and the efficiency of of log4j it often
happens that we forget to put the if(isLoggingLevelEnabled()) call in
to guard complicated log statements where a lot of string
concatenation or processing is done before the call.

While it would be nice to have a similar logging mechanism and process
across the implementations if pantheios has a smarter front-end that
avoids this evaluation when logging is disabled then perhaps this is a
good approach.
