[Catalyst] How to enhance Log4Perl log-files about the loggend in user ($c->user->id)?

i got a Catalyst-App which inits a session on the startpage, after a
user logged sucessfully in with his login-data. Now, i also use
Log4Perl to do extensive logging, as far as the app is enough tested. so
i use the log4perl conf file this way:


where log.conf logs all data into a file myapp.log. There are many
useful cspecs to show really exact log-entrys but one is missing,
i want to see which debug/error/warn message was logged by which user.
so how to pass the logged in user ($c->user->id) into the
log4perl log-files?
custom cspecs like descripted on CPAN
Log::Log4Perl::Layout::PatternLayout are not able to access the
namespace of my app,
or at least i am not able to pass the context to the custom-cspecs sub
in the log4perl conf-file :(
