Actually, I'm think I'm going to go comment the ReferIgnore for
out of our web server's configuration file and log about a complete days
worth of referer's.  Then, take that through a small program that does
the entire log file through both mechanisms (or perpahs a couple of the
mechanisms) and compare time outputs.  In fact, the test will be run on
three different OSes (Linux, SunOS 4.1.4, and Solaris 2.5) for "fairness".
I'd do it under DOS/WIN95, but who cares about that platforms performance!
