I think that argument to CustomLog is ok...  you just need to check if
logger was already initialized or not (ie. return NULL or data structure
from ap_*_logger_init).  Each ap_*_logger_init function will be run in
some order (AP_HOOK_FIRST, etc.) and it will stop after logger will get
initialized.  Should not be that hard to implement.

Yep, something like that.

You also need to store which writer to use in each config_log_state.

I'll think about it more and came with some proposal (or patch :-).
