Hello Thorbjørn ,

The XMLLayout in logback is intended as a bridge to log4j, so it should be as 
compatible as possible with the code found in log4j. I was the author of 
XMLLayout in log4j up until revision 309623. So to ensure closest compatibility, 
I just took the original code in log4j for which I co-own the copyright. 
However, I also looked at your code. Moreover, the code for outputting MDC data 
(properties) was copied from your version. Those are the reasons for adding your 
name as a co-author. It just seemed like the decent thing to do. If you are 
still unconformable with that, please let me know.
