Log4J Patch: SSL support for Gmail Notifications

I wanted to send email notifications with log4j using Gmail smtp.
The patch already exist, but it wasn't fully functionnal... I had to add some few extra things...
But I coulnd't find any release since 2007...

So I made a fork with github of log4j 1.2.15 svn tag and patched it ;)

You can find documentation on the project wiki page.
You can download the jar file in the download section.
Or you can review the source and even fork it if you need something more ;)

I have a sense that git is going to change the way we think of branching... might do a post on this subject one day ;)

Better than dirty System.setProperty code in some place.

Thank you... we already are using in production...
