you are reading minds. I thought the same when I was under shower this morning.

I think too that we should introduce exceptions. Basically I don't
think we need too much exceptions. Next point worth of discussing is
the naming. Imagine: ConfigurationException. This exception could be
used by other people too which makes it difficult to include Log4PHP
till namespaces are introduced. Maybe LogException will do the trick
and I don't think we need much more exceptions since Log4php is so
wonderful lightweight.
