If I remember correctly, it really didn't rotate it automatically. You
still had to send it y SIGHUP if/when you wanted the rotation. The time
stamp was just the starting date. But the server COULD DO IT, if you had
a need for it. But Apache can't. That's why I find the suggestion positive,
because it allows you to do something easily (albeit suboptimal),
or to do it "the optimal" way (even if requiring more programming), whichever
you prefer.
