logging: are we there yet?

The Chicago office has discussed some more, and (once again), we
succumb to ghudson's points. He's right. Everyone else seems to have
agreed with him as well, so we seem pretty close to a consensus around
ghudson's proposal.

Here's his proposal, in a nutshell:

   A. svnserve learns to log things to syslogd (and win32 logd)

        --> this may have to be in svn's API at first, but then someday
            moved out to APR.

   2. mod_dav_svn learns to write "high level" logs, in addition to the
      existing low-level ones.

        --> a number of apache developers have told me about legitimate
            methods to write 'custom' svn messages into apache's
            accesslog.

   3. nothing else writes logs.

        --> Logs aren't interesting or important (or trustworthy, or
            even necessarily complete) unless we're talking about
            server programs talking to clients over a network.

Any objections here? Things that haven't been treaded already?

If not, then we can start two new threads to discuss implementation
details of the new code we'll be adding to both servers.
