      Description

      As I wonder how to prefix yet another configurable system property, I noticed we have five families of configuration name prefixes:

      log4j.*
      log4j2.*
      Log4j*
      org.apache.logging.log4j.*
      <no prefix>

      What I'd like to do is strip out all those prefixes and allow any of them, but change the documentation to use only a single consistent prefix. This would also make it simpler when writing the properties into a log4j2.component.properties file as you could omit all the prefixes as they won't clash with other libraries.
