Well I guess it depends ;) The way I like to set it up is that for every 
separate "application" I have a separate Hierarchy object. And then for each 
relevent subsytem in application I create a new Logger.

This way I can easily manage all the logging for one application easily. It 
also means that if I am debuging a certain subsystem (say the persistence 
subsystem) then I can turn up the debugging so all messages are passed 
through for that subsystem but not others. 

So each subsystem is a different category and each application is a different 
Hierarchy is my recomendation ;) Note that this will not always work if you 
are using a distributed application.
