    We are on Java 7 for now so we cannot use Java 8 features unless we do so in a way is
not used on Java 7.
    
    The bigger picture item is: If we invented a Log4j include mechanism that works across
all of our configuration formats (XML, JSON, YAML), then we would not need a new watchFiles
attribute for this used case because we would know which files to watch. We could even enable/disable
watching on a per-include basis:
    
    <Include monitorIntervalSeconds="60">file://...</Include>
    
    This monitorIntervalSeconds would override the value set on the Configuration element.
    
    Sorry, I am getting side tracked... I need to bring this up on the dev ML.

> Automatic reconfiguration does not work with xinclude/xml.
> Modifying xinclude files is not detected as a file change on on the main config file
and as such it is not reconfigured when updates are made to files included with xinclude (ie.
log4j2-appenders.xml).
> Desired functionality would be to also listen for changes of files that are included
by main configuration file as well and update the configuration as needed.
> An alternative would be to allow user to specify additional files to monitor for changes.
