I'm not sure what you are getting at here. The implementation I wrote  
for myself used Logback's filterAndLog method if the implementation  
being used was logback and Log4j's log method when it was the  
implementation, both of which support passing objects. However, I  
wouldn't want to directly tie SLF4J to any implementation. Am I  
misunderstanding something?
