In order to add support for jdk1.4's logger.dtd, I duplicated much of the code required to
support the log4j.dtd (added the logger.dtd, created an entityresolver).

I also created a decoder interface that the XMLDecoder (log4j) and UtilLoggingXMLDecoder (jdk1.4)
classes implement to parse events coming from a file, etc.  This interface should be looked
over..I'm not terribly happy with it but it got things working.

The decoders need to be able to handle 3 cases: reception of only a partial event, reception
of 1 or more complete events, and reception of 1 or more events as well as a partial event.

You'll see the receivers that support XML construct the decoder through class.forname and
call decode in a loop.  The decoder only returns events it was able to parse from the passed
in data and any partial event it was holding from previous calls to decode.

If I recall, JDK1.4's sockethandler sends partial events and the log4cxx project needed the
same support.

Let me know if you have any questions..this was just a first attempt at multiple-dtd support..feel
free to change anything you think should be changed..

The multicastreceiver and udpreceiver create a couple of threads and should be looked at pretty
carefully as well.  

Hope this helps.

...from vacation.  I've been lurking for a few days, getting back up to
speed at home and work.

I want to start a review of the socket/xml related changes next week.  Can
Scott or Paul provide an overall roadmap of the changes in these areas?
