 * This local transform adds a logging ability to your program using
 * LogBack logging. Every method call on a unbound variable named <i>log
 * will be mapped to a call to the logger. For this a <i>log field will be
 * inserted in the class. If the field already exists the usage of this transform
 * will cause a compilation error. The method name will be used to determine
 * what to call on the logger.
 * <pre>
 * log.name(exp)
 * </pre>is mapped to
 * <pre>
 * if (log.isNameLoggable() {
 *    log.name(exp)
 * }</pre>
 * Here name is a place holder for info, debug, warning, error, etc.
 * If the expression exp is a constant or only a variable access the method call will
 * not be transformed. But this will still cause a call on the injected logger.
