yeah.  no dice.

the problem isn't about the overhead on apache-- its about the  
overhead of the database.  i believe pgLogD used a buffer to queue  
logging items, but had an db connectivity issue.. and dbWebLog was  
trying to address that.

but they both run into the issue of: your server gets slammed and  
you're continually doing db writes

for a page content server, any of these options would be fine..  but  
this is for a syndicated content server. its just tossing out 5 files  
- but onto other sites - as it does a lot of hit-tracking.   in  
private beta, its only serving 20k day -- which is more than fine for  
any of those issues.  but i'm looking at going into public beta next  
week,  and i fear that for my db.
