I had a chat with a former coworker last night who was starting with 
Hibernate and had downloaded 3.3.  I was a bit surprised that we don't 
package/ship any of the SLF4J implementations.  It's one thing to have 
to explicitly pick one, but it's another thing to have to go download 
something from a third party before Hibernate will even work (unless 
Log4J is unique in this respect...).

Can this be changed?
