    Defines the base class for Receiver plugins.
    <p>Just as Appenders send logging events outside of the log4j
    environment (to files, to smtp, to sockets, etc), Receivers bring
    logging events inside the log4j environment.
    <p>Receivers are primarily meant to support the receiving of
    remote logging events from another process. For example, 
    SocketAppender "appends" a logging event to a socket, configured 
    for a specific host and port number.  On the receiving side of 
    the socket can be a SocketReceiver object.  The SocketReceiver 
    object receives the logging event, and then "posts" it to the
    log4j environment (LoggerRepository) on the receiving machine, to 
    be handled by the configured appenders, etc.  The various 
    settings in this environment (Logger levels, Appender filters & 
    thresholds) are applied to the received logging event.
    <p>Receivers can also be used to "import" log messages from other
    logging packages into the log4j environment.
    <p>Receivers can be configured to post events to a given
    LoggerRepository. If a repository is not specified, then the
    default repository value returned by
    LogManager.getLoggerRepository() should be used.
    <p>Subclasses of Receiver must implement the isActive(),
    activateOptions(), and shutdown() methods. The doPost() method
    is provided to standardize the "import" of remote events into
    the repository.
