[logback-user] Changing logback configurations programatically

With the scan option logback can change its configuration on the fly.
I would like to take this one step further by adding to my Java Swing
application that uses logback, a facility through which the user could
specify a logging configuration at the direction of technical personnel,
within the application's user interface, to change logging configuration
without having to copy files, etc. The user would just
indicate that they wanted "configuration 4" for example and it would happen.
This would be implemented by the program writing a file to the place
where the program had specified the configuration to live. I could
obviously do this by reading the system property
logback.configurationFile. Is there another way? Is there an API that
provides this information?
