I was thinking about this.  With the new plugin architecture, you could
write a plugin that listens to a Socket or JMS topic conduit, and across the
conduit you could send "set level of logger" commands.  It would be a way of
setting the configuration on a large number of machines without requiring a
config file.  The new (yet to be incorporated) HttpWatchdog could be used to
do the same using a config file on a central web server.

The plugins stuff is going to REALLY open things up.  I think we are going
to see some very creative uses.
