Would a change notifier be told of the new filename?  I'm not sure, but it's worth a check.

Everything works fine, however, I'd like to retrieve the filenames of the current logging session since the application started. The user can obviously change the log filenames and policies in logback.xml, so I don't want them hardcoded in the source. My goal is to retrieve these filenames straight within Java in order to do some more processing with them. Is there any possibility in logback/slf4j to retrieve those names?
