Strong -1 on this, even though I'm not a committer.
commons-logging is bringing chaos wherever it goes in production and 
interacting with other components.
So please stop using that in your projects you do, that will help greatly.

log4j is flexible, documented and never gets in your way. It offers 
features, that are not available anywhere else and certainly not in the JDK.

Decision such as this should be made from a production point of view not 
from a 'coolness development factor' one.

Developpers have a tendency to forget that there are folks using these 
components in production and that they have something else to do rather 
than solve the 'how do I enable this implementation with what flag' 
which is all but documented consistently, no mentionning that the 
java.util.Logger documentation is extremely poor and unflexible.
