Commons-logging doesn't have any control over what configuration files
log4j uses. Commons-logging binds to just *one* log4j installation, and
lets that log4j installation configure itself.

Commons-logging therefore cannot help you. You might want to follow up
on the log4j list to see if there's anything in log4j that could help

I have to say I don't understand what it is you are trying to do; sounds
very odd to me. Normally the fact that a Log object can be created with
any arbitrary category name, and the (single) configuration file allows
different categories to be handled independently is enough. When you
post to the log4j list I suggest you try and describe your requirements
in more detail.
