I like this.  Generalization is almost always a good thing.  :)  
I could easily see

  HeaderMatch User-Agent /^Mozilla/ netscape=yes

or whatever instead of

  BrowserMatch /^Mozilla/ netscape=yes

The next question is, do we need access to other types of info, such as
remote_host?  Paul needs it for his host-based logging.  What else would really
be needed?  Request time?  

Anyways, if other folks think this at least the first option is a good idea, we
should move soon, before "BrowserMatch" becomes something we need to
