Yes, I think Jetty shoudl work the same way, and if we get a
loggingEnabled flag in there or something similar, the console web
access log can work the same way as the web statistics in that if it's
not enabled it'll have a bit saying something to the effect of "The
web access log is currently disabled.  Please consult your HTTP server
log if Geronimo is running through e.g. Apache or IIS, or else [Enable
Access Log]" (that last bit a link or button).
