> In this case, the logging call is operating in the "context" of the servlet request,
and you could do pass the servlet as the user-context object.  A servlet appender could check
if the user context object was a Servlet and if so delegate to its log method.  We could also
add patterns for %ipaddr, %ipport, etc, that would attempt to recognize the user-context object
and extract that info if it could recognize the type.
I am unsure of what you describe. Could you write some pseudocode 
showing what you mean?
