That has been known to happen.

So the proposal is not to make a swiss-army-knife-of-logging for SVN but
to fill the logging gap of local accesses which are not though apache.
Beautiful.

In your "rethunk" proposal post, shouldn't the log level of each
repository be stored in the .conf file as well as the file locations?

Will a restart be needed to re-read the conf files or will the getters
notice if a change occurs?
This could be done later since it could be encapsulated in the getter
code (or is the value cached in other processes?).
