Outch - please evaluate using %^xxx instead.  I'd rather this were simply
supported in a unified logging formatter, so it would apply to access, new
log extensions, etc.  It could imply delete-adjacent non-whitespace unless
there were multiple %-escapes in the same token.

I'm not fond of arbitrarily adding new escape codes, and we already had
a suitable one (%).
