Hello Arthur,

Thank you for your message. While I'd like to add a binding for log4j 1.1, the 
time spend into developing and maintaining this new binding would eat into 
higher priority items.

Nevertheless, I'd be happy to reference such a binding if your friend decided to 
write it.

Best regards,
