But, since mod_so is being processed as gets taken
care of immediately on the first pass, Ryan. It loads the specified
DSOs, so that their config directives can be handled, and in the
second pass, we never do the needed logging for mod_so. We simply lose
the messages, not log them in the second pass. And we can't very well
make mod_so Not be EXEC_ON_READ, or else we need a *third* pass to
enable mod_so on the second pass, and then take care of the directives
for the DSOs on the third. 

I'm fairly convinced that some form of ordering needs to be imposed on
how the directives are handled as the tree gets walked, if we don't
want to lose messages from anything that logs prior to LogLevel being
