It sure beats the included rotatelog program, because the generated names
are predictable. The rotatelog simply uses %ld for what time(NULL)
returns, while Andrew's program can automatically create subdirectories as
needed, like in
  TransferLog "|/usr/.../bin/cronolog /usr/.../logs/%Y/%m/%d/access_log"

I tried it, it's definitely useful. I asked Andrew to change the license
from GPL to something we could integrate.

Ah - I wondered how you'd created that. It looks very nice (but I
wonder if one page is enough for what 1.3.x offers ;-)

+1 from me.
