the functionality of "determine the ident user" is not in mod_log_config 
(of course) but the definition of the "%l" format itself. My first thought 
was to move the format definition also to mod_ident, which is - as Joshua 
pointed out - not a good choice, since the %l format will be needed by 

So it will stay in mod_log_config, which uses the already existing api call 
to get the value. Then it doesn't matter if mod_ident is present or not, 
because if the api call returns no value it will be automatically set to 
"-" in the log (which is the current behaviour, too). The format definition 
code is quite small, so the little overhead in mod_log_config doesn't 
really count.
