a sysproperty?

3. logs version 1.1 vs 1.0:  it seems that 1.1 uses the Excalibur Logger 
only for configuration, but still uses
LogKit for logging.  Again, can this configuration be used with other 
loggers, such as log4j?
Is 1.1 the recommended version?

4. Log4j vs LogKit:  can anybody point me to some documentation (if any)
