Java's Object Serialization Stream Protocol is publicly available 
(http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/guide/serialization/) as is the 
source for LoggingEvent.  There is no technical reason that I can see 
why log4cxx and log4net could not mimic the serialization of log4j's 
LoggingEvent, however it would require some exploration and 
experimentation to get it right.  I think the most complex aspect would 
likely be trying to mimic the serialization of Exceptions.

log4cxx isn't in a great spot to attempt it now since it does not use 
UTF-16 or LocationInfo objects in its LoggingEvent's, but that should 
be changing within the month.  If it were to be done, it could be 
faster to get it working with log4net and then port the code to
