If you agree, I intend to create a module under 
https://svn.qos.ch/repos/incubator with you having read/write access. You will 
then be able to create any directory underneath. When your project matures we 
will see how it can be incorporated into logback-classic or logback-access or 
alternatively live its own separate life.

Does that sound good to you?
