Not so sure about that one. An empty rotated file shows there was
nothing written. Skipping rotation might lead to the question, whether
rotation is broken (or the server was down during the change of date).

So I'd prefer keeping the rotation since it isn't so expensive and
doesn't happen to early.

But maybe I misunderstood you.
