Sounds like vhosts that need to learn how to program correctly. :)

Besides, the cgi could just as easily send such debugging message
to stdout. Course, if the patch is good and doesn't effect anyone
else, then allowing error_log to be piped might make sense.

PS: Hopefully you've setup the error logs correctly (ie: they don't
    exist in the vhosts's directory, owned by them, etc...)
