/**
Helper class to spoof log entries as produced by calling arbitrary code.
This allows non-intrusive testing of dependent objects without
explicitly using Mock objects as long as those dependent objects
do some proper logging.
As a measure of last resort, it can be used on MetaClass to spoof
it's log entries on 'invokeMethod'.
