[logback-dev] AS/400 specific logback project.

Hi Ceki.

After careful consideration I'd like to migrate the log4j routines I 
have written which caters to the AS/400[1] world into logback, hopefully 
benefitting the small but thriving "java on AS/400"-community[2] by 
providing better integration with qsysopr messages, spool files, qprint 
output and much more that I have only seen on this platform.

As this introduces a new software dependency, namely on the jt400 
sourceforge project, and on actual hardware to run the tests against 
which is rather impossible for mere mortals, I would suggest that this 
should go in a new logback subproject incubator instead of being merged 
in any of the current logback projects. 

What do you think?

[1] IBM marketing has renamed the platform regularily, currently it is 
named "IBM i".
