That's not really a problem. There is only one question: Which fields did 
your client need in the logfile?

Just use mod_log_config and use the apache format string which is similar to 
the extended log file format field.

For example the apache combined log (without username) in  W3C extended log 
format can defined with:
| LogFormat "%h %{%Y-%m-%d}t %{%H:%M:%S}t %m %U%q %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" 
\"%{User-Agent}i\"" extended
| CustomLog logs/extended_log extended

Add this header to the logfile (extended_log):
| #Version: 1.0
| #Fields: c-dns date time cs-method cs-uri uri-stem sc-status sc-bytes 
cs(referer) cs(user-agent)
