http://sourceforge.net/projects/qmmslog seems to be unmaintained but might 
still be a useful resource.

In general one might also investigate the idea of using log4j directly in 
debug builds. Using GCJ, you can create C++ headers for Java libraries and 
use the natively compiled version (log4j.x.x.x.jar.so) so the only overhead 
would be a tiny variant of a VM running. I've made good experience with this 
mechanism as it saves a lot of maintenance work for reimplementations, but 
there are also certain issues such as dlopen() aka plugged-in XML parsers, 
for instance.
