log is a protected static, so if the class resides in the same  
package, then you can use direct member access. Currently, in some  
places, the properties seem to be routing the message to the FO's  
logger, instead of using Property.log directly... and now that you  
mention it, what strikes me as utterly absurd are the occurrences  
where getLogger() is used *to access the FObj logger from within an  
FObj*! 8-O ... Let me re-phrase: use an instance method to access a  
protected static member of the superclass. That's a good one! :-)
Well, who knows, maybe today's JVMs do inline instance methods if  
called by the instance itself. ;-)

Don't worry, already cleaning up.
