The trace Level is meanwhile widely used and Log4PHP might benefit too from this feature
To be discussed
This is a feature which I missed a lot so I made a patch (done on revision 822624). Since I'm not a log4php developer, I do not know if I covered all the bases. I might have missed something in parts of log4php which I don't use. That said, I have used log4php with this patch for quite some time and it works fine.
Thanks for the patch! I added it with testcases. Its in rv912120
