 First I would ask what kind of logging you are talking about?  I find 
 that simply turning on debug output on the server to print out the sql 
 statements being executed is generally all I need for logging, and the 
 server already supports that.

 If your proposal it so use log4j for logging, then I would be opposed. 
 While logging is a good idea, having yet another non-postgresql 
 component that needs to be installed in order to build and/or run the 
 jdbc driver is in my opionion a bad idea.  I already dislike the fact 
 that I have to install ant just to build the driver.  It was so much 
 easier under 7.0 when make was all that was required.
