Unfortunately that plan html page is out of date.  Ceki has already done
major work in this area for the log4j 1.3 release which has not quite
reached the Alpha phase at this point.  You can see the fruits of his
efforts in the org.apache.log4j.rolling package available through the
cvs module.  

There is already a good chunk of test cases there for this area, so I
believe it is stable, pending the update of all the documentation
required for the release.

You will definately see this in the 1.3 release.
