But I'll think about it anyway, since it seems the only "fair" solution.

(never would have thought that before - but one can always learn :-)

imagine that if the developer is using log4j, they would consider JUL to
be a major step backwards and will not want to do it ... but they MIGHT
be willing to switch to slf4j.  With slf4j, the developer (and in some
cases, like with Solr, the end-user) can easily change the final logging
endpoint to whatever framework they like best, without changing the code
at all.

>From the user side, I find log4j's configuration to be a lot more
flexible than JUL.  I have never looked into the performance.  Putting
forth a conjecture: if the performance and flexibility of the logging
built into Java were good enough, I don't think that Apache would have
bothered with two of their own systems for logging -- log4j and the
logging subproject under commons.
