  Not to the standard log files, but close.

  With mod_security (, you can log POST
  requests to a separate log file.

  I am toying with the idea to trick the server into logging POST data
  as a QUERY_STRING, but I'm not quite sure how that would work.
  If anyone cares to comment, I'd gladly listen.

  I also plan to include functionality to sanitize parameters
  selectively, to avoid having sensitive stuff (passwords, CC details)
  in the log.
