+1. Maybe we can release put some kind of compat.jar in with the 
distribution that contains this class?

put maven in if you want, try it, use ant for building the release. 
Don't include the project.xml in the distribution just yet. We can 
probably do the next point release using maven beta8.

no one ever really felt the itch to work on logkit docs, and no one ever 
really asked for them either I think. I do agree there a bit sparse, but 
it's okay to release without writing more docs first.
