It is late 2004 now.  It will be interesting to see how far the ripples 
go, but changing all references to org.apache.log4j.Category to 
org.apache.log4j.Logger should be enough to fix logging-commons, ant 
and velocity and it is the right thing to do.

Might be difficult to write a Category that doesn't break some code, so 
maybe it should be removed entirely but that would not affect the best 
course of action for the affected projects.
