    I've added your converter, many thanks.
    
    Tests would be good and we need documentation before we can close LOG4NET-526.

>             Project: Log4net
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.15
>            Reporter: Joe
>            Priority: Minor

> A common requirement is to be able to define a base directory for log files that can
be used by multiple FileAppenders.  In this way, the directory only needs to be changed in
one place.
> Today the typical solution is to use a PatternString with a property that is set in code
before log4net is configured, e.g.
>       <file type="log4net.Util.PatternString" value="%property{LogDIr}MyFile.log"/>
> Suggested feature is to allow a conversion pattern that reads the base directory name
from an appSetting, e.g.:
>       <file type="log4net.Util.PatternString" value="%appSetting{LogDIr}MyFile.log"/>
