Anyone who still needs 1.3 compatibility is unlikely to move to the 
latest log4j 1.2.x even.  The rest of log4j users should also not be 
held back so much by the few who are stuck on 1.3.

There are various locking improvements (removal of bottlenecks, etc) 
that would be good as well (I've made these in my own fork of log4j and 
proposed them in the past).  In cases the best solution to these 
requires Java 5.  In others, it may not be possible to maintain absolute 
compatibility (though I think I'm awfully close).
