My thinking was that ServletContext.log will be 'routed' through 
commons-logging as well - and share the same logger configurability
and features as the rest of tomcat.

In other words the format, appender, output file will be configurable,
we'll get the ability to log the method/class that called 
ServletContext.log(), etc.

My only problem with using <Logger> is that it complicates things 
and it's hard to keep it at the same feature-level with 'real'
loggers like log4j or the jdk1.4 logger. 

For now I won't touch ServletContext.log - only implementation 
classes and the internal 'log'.
