Assume the conversion specifier "%logger{3}" and logger name 
"mainPackage.sub.sample.Bar". This will result in "m.s.s.Bar" which is the 
shortest string containing representations for all package names, plus the full 
name of the rightmost segment (the class name). The package names are 
represented by a single letter.

Does that make sense?
