How about having a fully configurable log files, something
that would understand escapes like this:

%a abbreviated weekday name
%b abbreviated month name
%d day of month
%h 12h clock hour
%H 24h clock hour
%m month in decimal
%M minutes
%S seconds
%T time as %H:%M:%S
%w weekday in decimal
%y year without centuries
%Y full year
%Z time-zone
%% a single %
%n \n
%t \t

%B bytes transmitted
%U requested URL
%C client host address
%E user email address
%A authenticated username
%I remote ident
%D method
%P protocol version

...and what else? I would be happy to implement this. Maybe the %letters
could be selected in a better way and not respect the ones strftime()
