Thanks for the pointer, sir. We are using cronolog now. But it is, quite 
obviously, a hack -- a work-around for Apache's inability to handle 
log-rotation on its own.

Being able to pipe log messages into stdin is great, but it should not 
be necessary to achieve something basic as log-rotation. When logging 
directly to files, it ought to be possible to reopen such files without 
a full restart, however graceful.

Don't you think? Yours,
