Hmmm... If you are using piped logs anyway, then I would definitely 
recommend have just *one* piped log and having the pipe program split it 
into virtual hosts and copy it to your central logfile.  (You will, of 
course, need to have virtual host info in your log format.)

That should be by far the most efficient and simplest way to go.
