Currently - as we are using Avalon for our components - we use
an avalon logger which is not directly logging but uses a 
logging subsystem. This subsystem can be logkit, log4j etc.
I think commons-logging is possible as well.
I honestly don't know if it's better to use commons-logging
or directly use log4j.

Yepp, but we have to provide this configuration and perhaps we
have to think about possible configuration conflicts. For example
what happens if a third party project comes with a log4j
conf as well. I think log4j handles this automatically but I'm
not sure.
