I think this will be a good start. On my project at
http://log4js.berlios.de I use also these mechanisms. Probably also some
webspace would be greate.

Yes, it will be difficult to unify them. I already tried to contact some
of the projects, but still with no success.

This I want to add this also to Log4js

Currently I work on this for Log4js.

For PHP there exists already a small example in the svn.

This exists already in Log4js using different Appenders and Layouts.

For the Web2.0 and Ajax Hype, the bridges to the servers (.NET, Java,
PHP) will get more and more important. Because of that I currently work
on this. The problem is, that I am not familiar with .NET.
