If the timing is to get something out next week, I'd suggest building  
the CVS HEAD without slf4j support for the snapshot release.  I have  
not confirmed, but my suspicion is that an slf4j-enabled log4j would  
require an slf4j*.jar on the classpath, potentially one from a  
specific beta of slf4j, to properly function.  The previous alpha did  
not have SLF4J support, so not having SLF4J support in the binary  
distribution would not be a regression.

I'd like to investigate before making a decision to drop running on  
JDK 1.2.  I'd have no problem with dropping the requirement to build  
on JDK 1.2 and coding around known javac compiler bugs.
