New directive, "TransferLogTransient", which explicitly opens and closes 
the log with each write.  That way sites can have persistant logs for 
heavy clients and save the higher overhead for less-frequently-used 
sites.  "ErrorLogTransient" is probably a good idea too.  I suppose the 
transient logs would then have to be owned by the same user as the child 
processes, a dangerous situation if there's a hole in the CGI scripts, 
but that's a hole for other reasons anyways.
