A few random questions...

   - how would this work if you're outside the Channel or Connection 
object and don't have access to _statusLogger?
   - how exactly does isInfoEnabled(...) make an intelligent choice on 
what to log, e.g. wouldn't it need access to the queue in order to know 
if logging is enabled for that queue?
   - where does connectionLogActor come from?
