Old mail cleanup....

Right.  I propose, now that we see that having apache pipe information to a
script is actually feasible, that we simply decide on a Very Large Common Log
File Format, Part Deux that is designed to only be written as STDIN on
another program (or sent as a char * to the logfile processing procedure). Is
just a format enough, or do we need something with explicitely typed data
like CGI?  I.e., if we just define the following

(current CLF) referrer user-agent real-object errstring 

and then pipe it to some really good logging program that we write and 
distribute with Apache, how likely a contender could that be for CLF2?

Can we automate this somehow?  Let Darwinism determine which accesses are 
the most frequent and cache on that?
