But it is still taking up space; not to mention CPU usage doing a
run-time check to see if a log is enabled.

I think it is very important that we can choose to build with all
logging code removed. This has been discussed before, and I thought you
were going to include an alternative macro, something like:
  BOOST_LOG(app,"testing " << i << '-' << j << '-' << k);

(Would that compile? If so I think this should be the main macro, and
the above format the alternative.)
