/**
 * <p>A simple logging interface abstracting logging APIs.  In order to be
 * instantiated successfully by {@link LogFactory}, classes that implement
 * this interface must have a constructor that takes a single String
 * parameter representing the "name" of this Log.</p>
 *
 * <p> The six logging levels used by <code>Log</code> are (in order):
 * <ol>
 * <li>trace (the least serious)</li>
 * <li>debug</li>
 * <li>info</li>
 * <li>warn</li>
 * <li>error</li>
 * <li>fatal (the most serious)</li>
 * </ol>
 * The mapping of these log levels to the concepts used by the underlying
 * logging system is implementation dependent.
 * The implementation should ensure, though, that this ordering behaves
 * as expected.</p>
 *
 * <p>Performance is often a logging concern.
 * By examining the appropriate property,
 * a component can avoid expensive operations (producing information
 * to be logged).</p>
 *
 * <p> For example,
 * <code><pre>
 *    if (log.isDebugEnabled()) {
 *        ... do something expensive ...
 *        log.debug(theResult);
 *    }
 * </pre></code>
 * </p>
 *
 * <p>Configuration of the underlying logging system will generally be done
 * external to the Logging APIs, through whatever mechanism is supported by
 * that system.</p>
 *
 * <p style="color: #E40; font-weight: bold;">Please note that this interface is identical to that found in JCL 1.1.1.</p>
