Another scheduler available.

Of course. I am using some code from Turbine too. However, "before" is not
a compelling argument since:
  older != better

Yes, they have a common interface and adapters for Log4J, LogKit and
the JDK1.4 thing.

I have been using it and I personally like it. IMHO the interface
allows me to use all of the features I need for the logging work.

Keeping the logger configuration/initialization separated I can still
use most of the sophisticated features each Logger has to offer just
by changing the configuration bit.

Have fun,
