One of the things that the webalizer author noted to "us"(ie, themes.org)
was that apache has a problem with sites that under a lot of load, and that
it sometimes writes hits to the logs that are started the last day of the
month at 11:59pm and written to the logs at the next day 12:00 or whatever..

This causes webalizer many problems..

Perhaps a logging thread would allow it to write in bursts, and also to make
sure that the timestamps are set correctly?  It would also allow for things
like mod_log_sql(Roxen has a logging module that allows writing to whatever
sql servers you have support modules for..)

I'm not sure if this is an issue with any other www servers, I hope not
anyways.
