The following line causes the error: java.lang.VerifyError: Cannot inherit from final class

def fromMap = [log: 1, other: true] as JSONObject

The reason seems to be that the JSONObject class has a member variable called log. This should be documented in the Javadoc

Similarly, you can't instantiate JSONObject passing it a similar map containing a key "log":

def jsonObject = new JSONObject([log: 1, other: true])

You end up with:

groovy.lang.ReadOnlyPropertyException: Cannot set readonly property: log for class: net.sf.json.JSONObject

I think that it needs to be documented that the word "log" is not allowed, or more preferably, JSONObject needs to be fixed to allow maps with key "log".
