I have not been able to find a mailing list discussion on the decision 
to deprecate DailyRollingFileAppender.  It would indicate that 
DailyRollingFileAppender might be removed in log4j 1.5 or so and 
alternatives should be considered.

Okay.  I wanted to understand what you were thinking.   If you want 
this mainstream log4cxx, the best process would be to raise this an a 
potential enhancement to log4j and see if you can get it in there.  
However, that process could take quite a lot of time before it trickles 
into log4cxx.  I haven't looked to see if the PatternLayout provides 
hooks for user added format specifiers, but if not we might look at 
making it a little easier to do.
