This bug report received no attention.  The work was done as a "Well, I need a
solution until the bug report makes it to a proper release", and would have
been reported in when this bug got attention to.

I was unclear in my wording.  I was thinking of the JDK14LoggerAdapter. 

If you make classes final, it is impossible to alter their behaviour, e.g. in
unit tests and when debugging.  I suggest that it does not make sense to make
any classes in a library final.
