Only caveat here is to at least casually glance at what kind of API
Apache itself provides. I would think that at some point it might still
be useful to surgically remove Apache's logging functionality and dump
that into APR (since it includes handling pipes, etc). I wouldn't want
to promote the [justifiably] much simpler Subversion API if it would
block the more complete one later.

If I might suggest focusing next on what is going to be logged and
where, rather than on the logging code itself. There may be further
argument^Wdiscussion about what gets logged which may impact on the
design of the actual log calls (but then again maybe not if we are just
talking about a format string and varargs to be evaluated later).
