The time logged by mod_log_config in %D will be more accurate than
that because it is from the moment the request is received by apache
to the moment the log is written after the request is sent.  There is
no way for apache to measure any time spent waiting in the
ListenBacklog for a free apache process to become available, since it
doesn't have any info on that.  You would need to measure that from a
proxy in front of apache or something like that.
