Out of dumb interest, what's the need for JCL in Tomcat? Tomcat 5.x is
JDK 5.x only isn't it, so couldn't it be using java.util.logging?

Much of Commons needs JCL to support JDK 1.2 clients, but I'd have
thought you only have that problem in Tomcat 3 and 4 maintenance
branches? Unless the idea is just to support users who might want to
use log4j.

I've still been using log4j, so is it due to java.util.logging being too weak? 

My main complaint is that I have to have a String to create a Logger,
rather than log4j which lets me use a Class so I suspect I've not felt
the java.util.logging pain yet.
