Yep, again it was a temporary thing in my mind.  I prefer the 
"local/properties" approach longer term.  Then we can use the log4j binding 
and pick up log4j.properties from classpath via local/properties.  The idea is 
that local/ is named in .gitignore.

Long(er) build times.  Bloated Hudson workspaces.  I guess thats it.  Are you 
going to watch for this?  And contact the committer to revert it when it does 
happen?  The point is its an unecessary situation anyway.
