I think 1.4 j.u.logging is going to take over eventually. As time
passes people care less and less about older JVMs. The fact that j.u.l
already available to the programmer without any extra effort and not
an external dependency means a lot to people who don't prioritize
their passions as: their god, their country, their logging api, and
then their family. That said, inertia will keep clogging and log4j
around for a good while.
