I Started trying to extend the classes i found... but then i use it as 
example on how to build a log4j appender...
i changed significally the stucture... i can say that i rewrote quite 
everything... for example i introduce a factory to build hibernate-pojos
As you can see in this newsgroup David licensed hiberlog under the LGPL.... 
on http://www.hibernate.org/97.html where all begins i don't find any 
original authors?!?!?
If  David Castro agrees i think we have no problem....
