my CGI files are big binary programs and of course I can modify them, but I
can't rewrite them in perl or python so I can't change the httpd child

My CGI programs gets the user id from a database and it already logs it in
it's own log file.
The STDERR idea is good but I forgot to specify that I want the username in
the access log instead of the error log.
