This patch is important, because it means that if I want to log something,
I don't have to modify mod_log_config.  Think of cookie logging.  Why do
we enable cookie logging if mod_usertrack isn't in the server?  I want to
be able to extend logging without modifying another module.

yes, this may be a bit more complex, but it puts the onus of logging a
feature on the code that implements the feature.  I would much rather do
that, then to put the onus on a completely unrelated logging module.
