There is an option for avoiding if() checks in client code at all. All you have to do is to implement operator<< for logger class.

    class logger
        // ...
        template<class T>
        logger const& operator<<(T const& t) const
            if(/*the check is here*/)
                this->stream_ << t;
            return *this;
        // ...

And then in client code:

    logger("app.gui") << "something GUIsh";

Though I am not sure, if a compiler will be able to optimize checks for every operator<<() to a single check for the entire output expression.
