Based on a quick read through the patch, +1.

BTW, does anyone have strong opinions for or against adding log
rotation logic to mod_log_config as an alternative to rotatelogs?
IMHO, it would be more efficient, and simpler for the server
administrator, to have some configuration options for mod_log_config
that would enable it to start writing a new log file at a specified
time interval or file size threshold.
