The org.exolab.core.logger package has always
been a pain to use, by default logging all output
under the 'exolab' log category. This makes it
impossible to filter logs by category, or enable
partial logging.
Late last year the enhancement to return a non-
default category was made, but this is not widely
used. Instead of updating openjms/exolabcore to
use the category based version, I suggest we toss it
completely, replacing it with commons-logging
(http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/logging/index
.html)

Amongst others, this provides pluggability for
log4j, JDK1.4 logging, LogKit.
