[logback-user] More on stopping loggers

My app needs to stop a logger every once in a while, close the file it's
writing to, and later in the app reopen the file and start logging again.
This means that we need a logger close() method, so a subsequent call to
getLogger() will behave as if the logger is being fetched for the first
As far as I can tell, this is impossible with logback. The reason is
that the configuration file which defines the loggers is read once on
startup and never touched again, which means it can't be reused to
create another instance of the logger.
Is this correct?
