    Description

      Currently you can have a pattern that will print out the last N parts of you package. So if my package was uk.co.ltheobald.foo.bar, then using %logger{2} will print foo.bar. But when I have a number of different package levels, this becomes less useful (in my opinion).

      What I'd find more useful is the inverse where I can ditch the first N parts. Something like %logger{-3} for example. That way I'd end up with:

      uk.co.ltheobald.Main logging as Main
      uk.co.ltheobald.foo.MyClass logging as foo.MyClass
      uk.co.ltheobald.foo.bar.MyOtherClass logging as foo.bar.MyOtherClass

      Removing from the start of the logger name allows me to consistently trim off package names that I know are always the same. I'll see if I can produce a code example for this if I get time but I wanted to log it in the meanwhile.
