Piping logs to an external program actually runs the program twice.
Looks like its a result of calling dup() and then closing the old
Also, for the new 1.3 with the reliable piping, it would be *great* to
see some other features in this area, since so many people are piping to
external programs...

I'd like to see a way to have Apache buffer a set amount of logging information
before piping it out... say something we could #define so that Apache
didn't keep piping out 128 bytes of information, but buffered 4-8K so
our external processors can run more efficiently?
Use a simple C program to log to and have it print to it's stdout when
it start's up.
