I believe I've solved this with the minimum amount of reflection. However, it now requires
that Log4j 2 be compiled with Java 6. It should still be able to run on Java 5. I tried to
declare that in the compiler plugin but it throws an exception if source = 1.6 and target
= 1.5. I believe the enforcer plugin would do it though.
