Testing it *properly* would take far longer than asking an expert, if
it happens that some expert already knows the answer.

For example, a simple "try it out" likely won't tell you what happens
if Tomcat writes a log entry at the same moment when you're clearing
the log file. Do you lose a log entry? Does the log file get cleared?
(Sorry Susan, I don't know the answers myself.)

I don't see what's silly about asking questions. Isn't that what this
mailing list is for?
