> In http://marc.info/?l=log4j-user&m=120898200413495&w=2, Robert Pepersack essentially
asks for a method of overriding the use of Exception.printStackTrace() to capture the stack
trace of the associated exception.  This can partially be done in log4j 1.x by providing a
custom layout that returns false for ignoresThrowable and then performs the rendering of the
exception as part of the layout.  However, it would not affect LoggingEvents that were deserialized.
 Also, if an AsyncAppender is used, the layout would be rendering an exception after it may
have been modified.
> The log4j 2 pipeline should not have this issue as the extraction phase done by the layout
should pull any info needed from the exception and the responsibility would not be split among
WriterAppender, ThrowableInformation and the layout.  So likely there is no additional design
criteria involved here, just the final design should be checked that it satisfies this use
