If we do the full split we'd have
- common-loggin main jar
- common-loggin-glue symlink
- common-loggin-backend symlink

with common-loggin-glue & common-loggin-backend synchronized so if
common-loggin-backend points to log4j common-loggin-glue points to the
log4j glue in common-loggin

One or two symlinks - that's peanuts.
What we can not handle is one jar present in some cases (log4j) and not
in others. We need the symlinks to always point to something - dangling
symlinks make tomcat crash
