That's what the original patch and the new one(s) are designed to do.

%s  is the "original" status (what isn't necessarily sent to the client) (A)
%>s is the "final" status. (B)

Apache 1.1      sends (A), 
       1.2b[12] sends (B)  and changes the meaning of %s (breaks it).
All use %s  as the CLF format string.

1.2b3 should (IMO) send (B) and use %>s to do it.

Only the Xmillion who want (A) would need to change their config.
