IMHO, it is getting more and more apparent that "libraries" and apps expected 
to get embedded to not depend on external logging frameworks in their code.

Instead, create an ApacheDS specific, LoggerFactory and Logger instance that 
is used throughout the Apache code. The LoggerFactory for standalone mode, 
can default to Log4J if you like to, but it should allow for embeddors to 
replace with their own provider.

Think IoC :o)
