If you're only interested in logging method entry and exit - in which case,
you're not really using logging to its full potential - then an AOP style
approach may work for you. But the point of logging is to send messages to
yourself (and others) from your code, and an AOP approach will not lend itself
to intelligent, context-sensitive messages.
