I share your concerns and am well aware of the points you raise. 

As for your applet, it will only run only on JDK 1.4 if you decide to use the JSR47 API. Furthermore,
log4j will be shipped with a smaller log4j-core.jar in the future.

In the past, I have tried to convince Graham Hamilton (the JSR47 lead). Why do you think JSR47
has a named hierarchy? :-) Do you think I got any credit for it? :-(
