While we really appreciate feedback on pre-release versions, there are 
reasons that it is designated "alpha" and you should be aware that 
there are known bugs (hopefully logged in Bugzilla which might be a 
good resource to find pitfalls), features are subject to change and 
should not be used in any production system.  If you are considering 
living life on the edge, you should go all the way and use the CVS 
HEAD, the last alpha is getting fairly old and we are would benefit 
from feedback as we approach beta 1.

Please know that I would really like to restore the binary 
compatibility in different versions of socket appender and have started 
some preliminary work, but can't predict when that would be complete.  
So hopefully in some happy world, Chainsaw will not care if it is 
talking to v1.2 or v1.3 of log4j (and even further out log4cxx or 
log4net).
