[logback-user] Substituting class/method names in logback log files with original names when deploying obfuscated code

Had thought about this too. However, the most reliable way of doing this
is to bundle the mapping with the code, as we can deliver lots of different
versions, including hotfixes, so doing offsite de-obfuscation will be
unreliable as we'll have a hell of a time ensuring that we match the right
stacktraces to the right mapping versions.
As I said, this is about checking out the feasibility and best approach to
performing the mapping. I'm well aware that this is not in any way an
absolute way to protect code, just makes it a little harder for average
curious people to stick their noses in.
So I'm aware of the limits and some alternatives, but I'd still be
interesting in evaluating how this particular approach could be implemented.
