We wrote our own framework using cocoon, inside the framework we are publishing applications.
Each application uses its own log4j logger for debug output. The appropriate logger is created
by an action, depending 
on the application-path inside cocoon. Available transformers are defined for the framework,
not for each application.
I'm able to set a logger for our Transformer using enableLogging(Logger) from interface "loggable".
But since we are 
using the Transformer quite a lot, it would be nice to distinguish the different Transformer

Basically I want to achieve a logger hierarchy like:

<application>.MyTransformer.<label from sitemap>
