you need to take care of cases where people would want to use
date stamped filenames but they don't rotate their logs wach day.

e.g. there's a problem if someone uses this feature to name their
logfiles but only rotates them once a week/month/etc, or even at an hour
other than midnight. If the server is restarted on a different day, it'll
insist on opening new logs when the intention was that it continued with
the old ones.

Renaming the logfiles when you're done with them is simple to do.
