[logback-user] SiftingAppender and RollingFileAppender, roll on close.

I still have a major bug to fix in cal10n. Next, is a review of Carl's
contributions in ch.qos.logback.*.net package. Once that is done, I'll
look at new bug reports and pull requests.

Thus, unfortunately I have not yet had a chance to look at your
changes to AppenderTrackerImpl and co. In my defense, my todo list is
ever expanding. Even when I spend the whole day working on logback, at
the end of the day, there are more logback-related items on my todo
list than the day started with. Not to rant but bug reports and pull
requests are generated at a rate faster than I can cope with them.

As jira.qos.ch states, popular issues, those with most votes and
highest activity, get treated first.

To your point though, that bit of rework to AppenderTrackerImpl was not strictly necessary but I felt the existing code, which essentially re-implemented LinkedHashMap in a clumsy way was  pretty low hanging fruit.  I'd be willing to make additional changes if the maintainer showed interest in accepting the patch, but my immediate need has passed.  My observation has been that the majority of the pull requests to Logback seem to get no comments at all.  But I went ahead and reopened this one here: https://github.com/qos-ch/logback/pull/107
