That would work. So you could either set the impl config file location via
property in, or by calling the
LogFactoryImpl.configure( String ) method I proposed.

| Nice idea.  The same format would work across multiple impls.  Would

>From reading the Commons Logging docs, I think one of the goals of the
project is to support a subset of functionality that is likely to be
supported by any logging implementation - just like any abstration layer
should - ie, JAXP doesn't support all the nifty Xerces features, because
they're not all fundamental enough.
