      Description

      My goal here is to be able to say:

      Logger log = LogManager.getLogger(Foo.class, new MyMessageFactory())

      Where MyMessageFactory extends a MessageFactory:

      and overrides:

      public Message newMessage(String message, Object... params)

      { return new ParameterizedMessage(message, params); }

      as:

      public Message newMessage(String message, Object... params)

      { return new StringFormattedMessage(message, params); }

      which would let me use native Java formatting instead of {} formatting /easily/

      I've attach the idea as the beginning of patch, which is missing the LogManager bits.

      Maybe we need a sub-interface of Message for param message, which would make me want to rename the class ParameterizedMessage to SimpleParameterizedMessage.
