Look closer. It doesn't use another fd; it opens and closes the log each
time it writes to it (the theory being that a well-designed script should
never have to log anything, therefore if you're sites screwed up anyway,
why not open and close a few files? It's a debugging tool, anyhow.) This
disadvantage to that is that , of course, the logs need to be writable by
the server user, but I think that's an acceptable solution, at least in
this case.
