i put commons-logging on the ToDo list because i thought allowing 
the user to choose the logging api woud be a good idea.  jackrabbit
doesn't use any of the advanced features of log4j, the port would
be straight forward (as manoj's patch proved)

but if the majority shares your concerns or if nobody is in strong 
favor of commons-logging i'd be happy to drop that todo item.

btw: what other apache projects are using commons-logging?

cheers
