I'm subscribed to the list, so you don't need to cc me.

I think the lack of the feature in log4j is due to the lack of a  
portable API for setting file permissions in Java.  log4net may have  
more access to OS-level features and might have insight here.  I'll  
ask them for comments.  I browsed the log4net code and didn't see any  
obvious hook for setting file permissions.  The could nest a  
<securityContext> element as a child of FileAppender and maybe that  
participates.  I don't think log4cxx has anything.
