I'm going to wade in here, and hopefully add something of value.  If I
don't, please flame as hard as you can etc.  I've written a module which

latest version is available at:

It only does access logs, not error logs, for reasons  people on this list
will well understand, but if you have any preferences on how it should be
done, please let me know.  I would really like to see this (or something
