The LoggingEvent is an object and as far as I am aware is passed by
reference. If it were copied each time it is passed to a method there
would be a performance impact.

I was rather thinking of just putting an ArrayList a named LoggingEvent
property, then the ADONetAppender would just lookup (or create as
necessary) the property, and then store their result in the list. Then
the LogImp would be able to retrieve the results as a list.

Good point, I will see what needs to be done to make it usefull for
