I am not sure that finding the implementation was the problem. As I  
said, I am not intimate with Pluto so I'm not sure exactly what the  
issue was. But the root of the problem seems to be that Commons  
Logging "manages" the Class Loader. Whether it is to find the logging  
implementation, loggers or whatever I can't say for sure without  
asking Ate. This doesn't work well for applications that are also  
"managing" the class loader. SLF4J won't have that problem since it  
doesn't do that.
