I am very happy to hear that :-) Thanks for clarifying. Having better support
for log4j is definately a pro. And I am interested to see once more people start
using it more how it compares to Logkit in Cocoon.

I see, and I understand the decision since there is now a logging TLP and
logging should not be Avalon's concern anyway. Perhaps there is a place for
Logkit at

Exactly my point. I don't remember ever having any problems with it. If people
want a feature not supported by LogKit they can use Log4j.
