Great!  Could you post this up on the testamonials section of our Wiki?
Or would you mind if one of us did?

Yes there is support for Log4J.  Currently it is only in the beginning
stages, but you pass in an XML configuration for Log4J with a specific
root element, or you can force it by specifying a particular attribute.
As I am answering emails before I have done anything this morning, I haven't
had time to check the code to tell you exactly how to do it...

See if you can find info on the Wiki, if not I can get you an answer later
