As far as the implementation would go, it'd be impossible to do multi-line
log messages via a header because an HTTP header is only supposed to be one
line. MIME folding allows the header to span multiple lines on the request
itself, but httpd then places it back together when parsing the headers.
Likewise, multiple instances of a header are folded together (or overriden
depending upon context). Note that there is also a limit of 8k for a
header value by default in httpd (but can be overriden by directives).

A slippery slope indeed lies in that direction. -- justin
