Yes, but with b) still this can be too late as you don't catch logging
statements from Spring happening before our logging tag is read.
Personally I could live with that.

Thinking about this, I have the feeling that it's not Cocoon's task to
configure logging. It's not our concern, it should more be the concern
of Spring as the core framework underneath everything.
But the interesting part is that even Spring has only partial support
for that. And I'm wondering why noone has complained about this yet.

Strange, I think this happened a year ago with another jetty release as
well. It was afaik some changes in class loading hierarchy and provided
jars from jetty.
