The problem is that by this point everything is going to a single log4j
instance, meaning that there is no way to configure per-webapp logging

Well, there is, sort of. JBoss have this odd hack where you can use a
custom log4j filter to filter out everything except messages coming from
a webapp at a specific "context path". That's really inefficient though.

It's much nicer to set up logging so it goes to *different* logging
library instances (ie ones deployed *within* the webapp) rather than to
a global instance which then filters out messages by context.
