Interesting. I must have missed this PR. In Apr 1003, I created which instead of reporting the Location,
reported the series of build <project> names that ended up calling a
given target (by tracking the Project associated to each log event),
but Conor had concerns about the impl in the face of <parallel>, but
this patch is safer, since the location is always valid.

The problem with loggers and listeners is that it's a pita to specify
them on the CLI, or to configure them using properties. But that's an
old rant ;-)

For this particular case, maybe this location-logging feature would be
better as a BuildListener rather than a Logger. My $.02. --DD
