    Good point (excellent point, actually).  For many things I would
    prefer the RPL interface - but I would like the flexibility of being
    able to *not* log it at all if I felt that was better.  "Give 'em
    rope."  I don't mind if the relevant documentation says RPL is the
    preferred method for performance (although I'm not convinced that it
    wouldn't be a wash, system-wide).

    Okey, I'll dust off and update the patch I had for this.  Shall I
    work it up for 1.2/contrib and a 1.3.1 feature?  Or for 1.2.5 and
    1.3b3?  Or what?

      CustomLog logs/log-if-zed CLF env=ZED
      CustomLog logs/log-ifnot-plugh CLF env=!PLUGH

    Still needs to be voted, but it sounds like they're there (me and
    Marc this go-round, Paul from the earlier one - and it's even Dean's
    syntax! ;-)..
