This would imply that I have to restart Tomcat at rotation time which I 
do not want. Velocity seems to keep the log file open forever in my 
configuration, so even if I rename it, it continues filling up at the 
new location because the fd is never closed.

There is something like that, but I do not want to rely on it, rather 
write the rotation script myself. But then I am stuck at above problem.

I will go for the velocity mailing list and learn some configuration.
