now i'm thinking about it, this route has difficulties as well. some 
loggers (eg. LogKit) think that being able to get the current priority for 
the logger is too much of a security risk. so you can't rely on the 
wrapper being able to get a decent value for getLogLevel. components would 
therefore have to avoid using this the getter since the effect would be 
log system dependent. so i guess that if you're removing the setter there'
s an argument for removing getter as well.
