The log4cxx API comments are a copy from the log4j API comments,  
log4cxx probably never supported the special values.  Don't know  
exactly when support was removed from log4j, but many years ago and  
maybe at the switch from log4j 1.1 to log4j 1.2.  If it is really  
important to you, then you may need to write a custom appender.
