Not necessarily. If what you prefer is text ouput,
what you describe is the ideal solution, and I think
TelnetAppender is already included with the 1.2

OTOH, I think the idea of this one is to be able
to access the event objects, which can then be
redirected to a local handler (EG to a local
RollingFileAppender, or for display in a GUI
tool, like Lumbermill). In fact, if and when
I ever have a free moment from my job again :(,
I was going to write the exact same thing.
