Actually my point was that we can do few things now, with minimal impact 
on the release. 

At least changing util's Log to default to commons logging - the line
is just commented out right now. This will make 4.1 work with only 2 
loggers instead of 3 ( well, without counting jasper ). And including 
log4j.jar in the release - another easy one ( otherwise commons-logging
will not work very well except on 1.4 ).

After 4.1.0 - it's quite easy to change Logger to default to 
commons-logging, and same for jasper ( after all they are supposed to 
be pluggable interfaces :-). In time the code can start using 
c-l directly, but with this changes we get every log (indirectly )
going to c-l. 

Then there's a small config change, i.e. removing any explicit Logger
from server.xml ( both 3.3 and 4.1 ), and adding a sample
and jdk1.4 config. 

What about this: after you tag the tree, I'll make the changes and see 
how it works. If you're happy, we can merge this to the release branch.

( I'll still wait for Larry, Bill and the others about 3.3 logging,
since the switch will make all logs go to c-l in 3.3, the Log interface
is used there heavily ).
