Support for log4j2

Description

Due to API differences between the log4j and log4j2 LogEvent object, the current log4j input cannot read log4j2 events.

Is the plan to have the log4j input module support both versions or would separating them into their own modules be the preferred route?

For sake of reference:

log4j LogEvent: http://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/apidocs/org/apache/log4j/pattern/LogEvent.html

log4j2 Log4jLogEvent: http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/log4j-core/apidocs/org/apache/logging/log4j/core/impl/Log4jLogEvent.html
