    Yes, that too.  That's why I think it is beyond cron's scope to
handle log rotation.

    Well, that's why the filename would be generated with
user-supplied criteria.  You could have a filename based on the
current month instead of the current day.  Or on the first component
of the URL.  Anyhow, I just wanted to toss the suggestion into the
crowd and see what people think.
