Unfortunately, java.util.logging does not reduce our dependencies at  
all.  Some external jars that we have require commons logging, some  
require log4j, so we can't get rid of those.

Moving to jabsorb in preference of jsonrpc lib means that we have to  
*add* another set of logging libraries, namely slf4j.

java.util.logging does not really help the situation at all (and in  
fact, makes it worse, since j.u.l does not support multiple logging  
configurations per jvm, which is pretty much a showstopper for my own  
installations, for example.)
