That DocumentRoot is not a good idea.  You are exposing the home
directories of all your users directly to the web.  Are you sure that all
your users are comfortable with that?  Even if they are, there are special
files in the home directories that probably shouldn't be served (.profile,
ssh keys, etc).

No.  I suggest that you log to all one file and have a post-processing
program split it out for you.  That will be the simplest and most
efficient way to handle it.
