[logback-user] logback-classic 1.4.9 removes public method

apparently logback-classic 1.4.9 removed the public method 
`configureByResource` from `ContextInitializer`, thereby breaking 
backwards compatibility? The method was removed in a commit [1] which 
made it into 1.4.9. It was deprecated in November of last year:  I don't 
think this deprecation has ever been in a major release? Even if it had, 
I'd say it's poor form to remove deprecated things in a patch release.

This breaks Play Framework [3] which uses the method for its logging 
setup, making it impossible to upgrade to this patch version.
