Logging framework for shell scripts

'log4sh' is a logging framework for shell scripts. It makes the task of adding advanced logging to shell scripts easier, and has much more power than just using simple "echo" commands throughout. It can also be configured from a properties file so that scripts in a production environment do not need to be altered to change the amount of logging they produce.
