I think it make sense to keep the message and its parameters together, 
and since the parameters have to be at the end then it does mean the 
Throwable comes before the message. It does mean that there is a bit of 
inconsistency in the ordering but it might be a bit odd to put the 
Throwable between the message and its parameters.

I think the changes to use isLoggable should be separated out into their 
own issue.
