Add log format to log file itself





------- Additional Comments From bugz@macrotex.net  2003-05-26 15:47 -------
I agree that there is some ambiguity on a graceful restart. To make things
simple, and yet still useful, write the "header" (i.e., log format comment
string) to the log file only a "hard" restart. This would still be quite useful
to those who know about it. Like I said, I think it should be optional with the
option turned off by default. 

The problem with adding the format to every line, not only does it increase the
log file size by upwards of 15% or so, a web log parser has to examine every
line to see if the format has changed adding considerable computing overhead. 

I still think, the graceful restart notwithstanding, that adding the format on a
restart would prove to be beneficial.
