I live in Sweden, and I really, really hope we never see the same thing here. 
But the point: Why implement this in e.g. Apache, when it is the ISP
responsibility to store this information for all "internet-sessions" initiating
and terminating package.

This should be implemented in the firewall/router instead of on
application level.

A standalone sniffing box should be the best solution to this, I guess.
That does NOT store the content. 

This is insane.
