will allow and to be compatible with log4j configuration and output formats.

Since log4j is already in Debian its natural to also 
include its C++ port. Additionally this could close Bugs #288336 and
#288337 in the long term because log4cpp is orphaned and the upstream
is not maintained anymore. Log4cxx is better maintained, and
a new version is in progress. Log4cxx should therefore replace
