  Why not just support access logging to a pipe. If you do that, then the
  backend logging mechanism could be anything, and wouldn't have to involve
  apache code.

Well, actually we already *do* support logging to a pipe, for transfer logs
at least (it shouldn't be too hard to add for error logs if it isn't there
already).  The tricky thing about doing this, which is not handled at all
well by the existing code, is handling error recovery when the logging
process goes away.  (Doubly so for error logs --- if your error logger dies,
where do you log the event?)
