Thanks for the "Spring Cleaning" and the positive feed back!  After 3 days of analyzing logging,
I was feeling a little "Logged Out", so the pep definitely helps.  

I made all the changes you suggested (Good eye).  I think it's ready the wiki now, unless
anyone has additional modification.

I still need to go through a few more of the earlier responses to the thread.

Thanks again,
- Ole

Perhaps something more along the lines of "java.util.logging, as implemented by JULI" would
be more appropriate.

 See lines 182-185 of the 6.0.16 script.  It also set java.util.logging.manager
to point to the JULI LogManager implementation.
