I don't follow the last sentence.  The current macro definitions (and  
the implementation of the supporting classes) attempts to avoid the  
use of an actual std::basic_ostream if possible, so it should be more  
efficient for logging simple strings than the 0.9.7 implementation or  
an alternative using logstream.

Adding W would not transparently support logging TCHAR* (programming  
model used on Windows  where TCHAR either char or wchar_t depending on  
preprocessor macros).  The LOG4CXX_ macros needed to effectively  
perform parameter matching (which compiler does, but not the  
preprocessor) to determine the matching stream type.
