Does anyone have any thoughts on what should be recorded in the log file
when a script issues a redirect by making its own 'Location:' header, which
points to a local resource?

At present 0.3 records the original accessing URL but doesn't show the
URL of the actual information that was output.  You know which URL people
used to get to you, and you know how much information was sent back, but you
don't know where it came from.

You could force an offending cgi-bin script to keep it's own private logfile
and run an end-of-day job to merge the logs somehow, but shouldn't the main
logfile keep an accurate record of what's transmitted as well as what's
requested from the server?

Is this dangerously close to Hartillesque logfile FeatureCandy(tm)? ;)
