This is where I'm sitting too.  There just isn't enough information in
the logs to be of any damned use to anyone.  The current state of affairs
(which Brian objects to) isn't really what I'm looking for, and seems,
in all fairness, to be a kludge.  It's feasible to do per-user
tracking (buisness & marketing types 'lerrrve' this stuff) by analysing a
more complete logfile, but we're not there yet.

Is it too much work to add a support/apache2common script?  Or would other
behaviour break if we removed the patch that added the additional log-entry?
