You'll have to provide a very good technical reason for that, much more 
than "I like Log4J better" or "Log4J is cool". Consider that:

1. Avalon logkit can use Log4J as the backend enging while, to the best 
of my knowledge, the opposite is not true;

2. logging is tightly integrated inside the Avalon lifecycle, which is 
tied to logkit. Changing it to Log4J would be painful to say the least.

But, in case there are very good reasons for it, I guess no Cocoon 
developer was ever married to logkit, and a better solution is always 
welcome. Let me be skeptical, though. :-)
