No, I *am* talking about QUERY_STRING.  This seems kind of

Anyway, in case anyones interested, I hacked a new version of the
logger, that is *not* configurable, but suits my needs a bit better.
I am under the gun to start getting some accounting in place and
am taking the short route. I wrote a script to convert from CLF to
my new format and just realized that the QUERY_STRING is being logged
as part of the request in CLF.  *sigh*  

I have ditched the idea of talking directly to a database or logging
daemon.  It creates way to fragile an environment to depend on.
Using the filesystem to cache this is much safer.
