Yea I think we all go that. Important part is:

- "log4j-1.2-api" becomes "log4j-1.2-bridge" and is named "Log4j 1.2 Bridge"
- "log4j-jcl" becomes "log4j-jcl-bridge" and is named "Commons Logging
- "log4j-slf4j-impl" becomes "log4j-slf4j-bridge" and is named "SLF4J

Consistency is a good thing, and it helps users out by not confusing them.

Yes! Preach on brother :) +1

Small correction: I'd like to rename the log4j-1.2-api jar to
log4j-1.2-bridge-2.0.jar (without api in the name).

Currently we have three different names for things that provide a
bridge/adapter from other logging APIs to the Log4j2 implementation:
(Commons Logging) Bridge, (Log4j 1.2) API, and (SLF4J) Binding.

Would it be a good idea to call them all "Bridge"?

On the web site, components would then become:
Commons Logging Bridge, Log4j 1.2 Bridge, and SLF4J Bridge.

The jar files would become:

I would especially like to rename log4j-1.2-api-2.0.jar so we only have one
jar with "api" in the name.
