I agree. The use cases for log4j are all for advanced users IMO.

There are things that I suspect are much easier to do using log4j (such
as rolling logs on a schedule other than once per day) or things that
cannot be done without either implementing a lot of stuff yourself or
switching to log4j (such as logging to a database or UNIX syslog daemon).

These topics should be considered advanced and the reader can be
referred to existing Tomcat documentation for how to switch to using log4j.

See above. I'm sure others will have other ideas.
