If you do need to write custom code, I would recommend writing a  
custom RollingPolicy for the  
org.apache.log4j.rolling.RollingFileAppender (o.a.l.r.RFA) in the  
extras companion (http://logging.apache.org/companions/extras).  The  
o.a.l.r.RFA was designed to support pluggable RollingPolicies which  
provide the strategy for renaming files and TriggeringPolicies which  
provide the strategy for determining when to trigger files.  It seems  
like you might just want to mix the FixedWindowRollingPolicy (which  
provides .1, .2, etc file names) with a TimeBasedTriggeringPolicy.
