    Ah, okay... I'll scan the mail archives to see what's been
discussed before then.

    Taking it another step further, we could have:

<TransferLog logs/access_log>
LogFormat "%M\t%n\t%N\t[%D:%h:%m:%s ... "

<TransferLog logs/verbose_log>
LogFormat "Host: %h\nRFC: %r\nDate: %D\n"

<RefererLog logs/referer_log>
LogFormat "%/\t%F"

    I don't know how easy it would be to support an arbitrary number
of log files like that without bogging down the server so that all it
does is write log files.

    Not at the moment... this idea had been sitting in the back of
mind for a few months now, ever since I tried writing my own set of
log file parsers.  I'm not a particularly strong C programmer
(*sigh*), but I like hacking away at code.  Unfortunately, I wouldn't
be able to say when I will have something to show for it.  :(
