I tried to follow the discussion on slf4j-dev.  The marker effort  
seems way too experimental and novel to be consistent with the  
"Simple Facade" part of SLF4J's full name in my opinion.  I don't  
think it has been enshrined into a beta yet.   The log4j CVS HEAD  
implementation hasn't been updated from 1.0-beta3 to 1.0beta4 and I  
should take a look at that.
