Just one question.  Does apache keep the log open long term, or does
it open and close it for each item it writes?  If it keeps it open
you'll have the problem that the log never rotates (it'd keep the old
file open), unless you split out individual lines, but then you'd need
special handling to keep apache's pairs of lines together.
