Hi Gaurav,

That would be cool..

and such be discussed with other developers on the dev mailing list first?

We discuss this on the dev list indeed, but since not a lot of taglibs are currently being
on, I don't know if you get any valuable feedback for those libs. The one thing I can say
though is
that we value backward compatibility very much, which means in a binary way and that everything
out of of the box it did before. (for the logging taglib I can imagine that is slightly harder
accomplish, even though Logger extends from Category). So if you change the Category to Logger,
sure you leave the category methods as is (just deprecate them) and add a method accepting
(haven't looked at the code, so just mentioning ideas).
One thing to do is at least attach your patches to a bugzilla issue, so we won't forget about
start nagging us to apply them :)

Looking forward to your patches ! :)
