So, how would this be done though?  A large site doing a lot of hits/sec
could end up spending most of its time just compressing log files.

I still like the idea of a logging process, perhaps something that could
be centerally managed, but I should probably try to write one before
asking for one =)
The typical Unix hacker never can remember what the PRINT command is

game. People don't do Serious Work on Unix systems: they send jokes
the world on UUCP-net and write adventure games and research papers.
