I've been very happy to discover SLF4J.
Log4j has long needed a rework.
SLF4J is a fresh wind :)
It can blow Log4J out of the water.
If it goes MIT me thinks.

As SLF4J gains popularity it will likely
be perceived as same in kind to Log4J.
However Big Co-s will rather "pirate"
the conveniently licensed alternative.
I don't see how Log4J can be replaced this way.
IMO Logback needs MIT/ASL.
P.S. "cross-posting" to my blog :)
