just to let you know my oppinion:

this will never ever happen.
j.u.l is crap because it does NOT have something that one can call an API!
I do not know what they drink at sun's but the jdk is full of rotten design
mistakes.
Some highlights:
* See Calendar.get(int). And a Month starts with 0, but day with 1.
* Why does Iterator not extend Enumeration
* See the complete collections and
  OperationNotSupportedException - is that an API?

I know its not always easy to design a great API and of course JDK is the most
central part so there will always be someone complaining. At least the newer
things get designed better.

Serious applications will continue NOT to use j.u.l !!!

Please keep going with JCL - hey, ho :)

Regards
  Jörg
