Hmm, yeah, but this won't help with the problem Cliff is facing, I 
guess: he is probably logged into and wants to debug a 
script he's developing right now, so (pre-)enabling it in the server 
config makes no sense. It'd be really nice to have the possibility to 
enable script/rewrite logging 'on the fly' without any changes to the 
config, besides a AllowOverride option (and with the downside of 
opening/closing the logfile per request).

Or do you possibly think about something similar to the following:

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ ...
<Location /cgi-bin/debug>
    ScriptLog ...
    ScriptLogBuffer ...

where you'd have a dedicated sub directory to test your scripts. Hmm, 
why not?
