I believe you are the one who best can judge the location, and I can 
just give the facts as objectively as I can. 

This will introduce a dependency on the jt400 project (which should be 
in maven) so compilation should be possible on any Java platform.   
Testing will require an AS/400 box.  If this catches on, then I believe 
it should be possible to arrange something either with IBM or others.  
Time will tell.  This also goes for the number of interested users :)

I expect this code to be very stable and unchanging when mature, simply 
because the AS/400 is extremely focused on backward compatability.  It 
will most likely be changes in either slf4j or logback that will trigger 

There is precedent of JMS classes being in logback-classic (most likely 
to be log4j compatible), but I have no idea how hard this has been to 
maintain, so I'll leave it up to you.
