Error log doesn't contain virt_host/server name so If i log errors to a
common file/sql i can't split them later based on virt_hosts which
caused them.

If, i am not mistaken .. "__after__" means that the msg is already
logged to error_log and them passed to hook. Thats ok with me, as i can
get the server name from "request" structure and log the same msg again
to syslog appending server name.

thanx for the help,
