[logback-dev] Logback and Java requirement

Hi Ceki.

I just migrated an elderly application using log4j and jcl to logback 
except logback doesn't run under Java 1.4 (which is what I have on this 
AS/400).  Bummer.  I wanted the markers to be able to filter on 
threads.  Oh well.

I could not locate anywhere on the logback pages that Java 5 is a hard 
requirement (but it was mentioned way down in a slf4j page).  I'd 
suggest you add a notice to the download page.

(And it appears that http://retrotranslator.sourceforge.net/ works with 
logback under 1.4, but that
stack traces look somewhat strange, I'll look into that later)
