Well, I don't shy away from using log4cxx. Actually, we are using it 
extensively. But switching from Visual Studio 2008 to 2010 was really 
a pain. Not because of log4cxx, but because of a compiler flaw. We had 
to move a bunch of these LOG4CXX_LIST_DEF macros around.

And 0.10.0 has been released almost 4 years ago. As far as I know, there
are a lot of improvements to log4cxx in the repository, that haven't
it into a release.
