I know, I know, your arguments make sense.

The problem I have with that is that the configuration is not consistent 
with the rest of the container configuration (while it should IMO be 
integrated). Another problem is that it's not finished, and another one 
is that we still need a lot of similar code for our specialized logs 
(aka, the access log). So that's why I plan to cut the thing in half and:
- use c-l for all logging for the Tomcat core
- use the Tomcat loggers for all webapp related logging
