For better or for worse, there are alot of folks who would prefer to turn
off local error logging completely, and do all logging via a distributed
mechanism.  Actually, I was also considering whether it would be better to
do a AP_IMPLEMENT_HOOK_RUN_FIRST, so that you can /truly/ override the
internal logging mechanism safely.  Would that fit people's
safety/flexibility concerns better?
