I was never suggesting requiring it -- only leveraging it where 
possible.  [I'm not *that* self-centered.]

I started writing loads of code against 1.2.x about a year ago expecting 
that I'd get to upgrade to a 1.3 "final" in a few months this entire 
time.  From where I sit it certainly seems like 1.3 is drifting -- there 
haven't been any clear signs of progress to those primarily focused on 
1.2 in that time.

I'm not taking it personally.  If I was as blunt as I am and took things 
personally I'd be in a real sorry state most of the time.

Thanks for pointing out that folk are busy with ApacheCon, however, as I 
really was worried that the log4j development community was this sleepy 
that loud, obnoxious raising of serious issues didn't stir too much 
response or immediate action.  Putting this in context with ApacheCon 
put a bit more hopeful spin on things...
