Consolidate logging, support fine-grained logging

We currently have at least two logging mechanisms in the code:
- calUtils.js' function LOG()
- calWcapUtils.js' function log()

Moreover we've more and more code logging, bloating the console if calendar.debug.log or calendar.debug.log.verbose is set. This makes it increasingly harder to read the log.

I think we need to
- consolidate and find a new API
- have a look at what stock mozilla platform offers
- add support for scoped/fine-grained logging, i.e. that users can switch on logging for specific code areas only, like e.g. "itip, wcap".
- add support for file logging (wcap's logging code may be recycled)
Flags: wanted-calendar1.0+

- add support for different log levels, e.g. from 1 (basic) to 5 (verbose) like "itip:5"
See bug 451283 and 450631.  We're planning on having log4moz available as part of Thunderbird, either as part of log4moz in toolkit or in mailnews.
adding dmose, because i know he cares.

I don't think this is a 1.0 blocker.
Agreed, not that important!

If this should be of use for calendar and its providers this should depend on bug 451283, shouldn't it?
Calendar is not only used in Thunderbird/Lightning but also in Seamonkey and probably others.
