Thanks Jason.  We're using syslog-ng as well.

So how exactly are you implementing this?  Apache procs piping to a
perl process which shunts things out to your syslog server?

Do you do any post/pre-processing for timestamp duplication?  We want
to try and have the logs on the syslog server look exactly like they
did on the origin server (ie no syslog timestamps, no syslog
facility/priority stuff and no "hostname").
