[rfc][icedtea-web] makeing basic logger work at least a bit

Well the current logger is even more broken then I thought. It is not working at all:)

The reason is that deployment configuration it is using is not ready in static time.

The best fix for this would be to make jnlpruntime.config better singleton then it is (several 
initialisations via load/load(boolean) - but it appeared to be tricky.

So I'm creating one redundant copy only for initialisation of logger, and then dropping it.

Well there is hidden one more change (/me knocking myself to head for double patch again)
The xml logger is imho completely redundant thing for puposes of itw.
  - itw is not 24/7 hyper multi thread application
  - the output contains also soutt/err messages (hard to read among all the tags!)
  - every run of itw had its separate file
  - c-part  is not (yet?) using  thsi file - should, And if will ,then xml will be even harder bourden.

I'm quite affraid of reactions after log flame-war, but I couldn't resist :)

The  log(ItwLogger.getHeader(ItwLogger.StdStream.OUT)); is just idea not necessary for this patch 

Sorry for making noise with all the logging
