> [DefaultRolloverStrategy|http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/appenders.html#DefaultRolloverStrategy]
>  has a very compact configuration, but as a trade-off has become a bit 
> monolithic. I find it difficult to unit test and maintain. 
> Continuing in the spirit of the work done for LOG4J2-435, I would like to 
> break out components for the different kinds of processing done by 
> DefaultRolloverStrategy so that they can be individually configured and 
> combined by users. Users would configure a CustomRolloverStrategy by 
> specifying nested actions that define what needs to be done during a rollover.
> The DefaultRolloverStrategy would still continue to work as current, but 
> under the hood can delegate to these components.
> _At this stage the above is still just a concept. The description is to be 
> updated when it becomes more clear if and how this would work._
