For VirtualServerAdmin, I believe there is a bug-report/enhancement
request on this in bugzilla.  You can get similar functionality using
ErrorDocument to trap errors and designing the pages to report whatever
you want.

VirtualCustomLog is not really a very good idea.  It would involve way too
many file descriptors.  And it would encourage people to do silly things
like write logs to directories owned by non-root.  The better way to do
this is to include the name of the virtual host in the log file, and split
the log using an external program (either post-process, or thorugh a piped

VirtualErrorLog has all the same problems of VirtualCustomLog.  But
unfortunately, it is not as easy to suggest a workaround, since there is
no consistent way to write the virtual host name to the error log file.
