The current code only puts it in the same location as the _default_ pid
file; I want it somewhere that people don't have to care about virtuall
all the time, since it isn't a file that even has a directory entry after
it is opened since it is unlink()ed right away.  server_root/logs was
thought to be such a directory, but as it turns out, /tmp exists on a far
higher percentage of systems than server_root/logs does.  There are many
packages where they put the logs somewhere else and don't have a logs
directory.  Many many many.
