All in all sounds very good, and I think people who look at Avalon (and Cocoon 
I guess) for the first time, as I did some months ago, will be a lot less 

I suggested to the Log4J community last year, to support that JDK logger calls 
could be configured to be routed to Log4J. Ceki said that was a splendid 
idea, but don't know if they have taken up that challange.

I don't know how that sits with your IoC, but isn't JDK Logging always 
available to any Block?
