I think everyone is assuming that we're planning to add a whole
"subsystem" to mod_dav_svn; that was never part of the plan. The
plan was to make mod_dav_svn write "client did an update" to the
standard apache accesslog, nothing more.

But, it sounds like people want us to make mod_dav_svn more complex
than that... to be able to write its own private logs as well. Once
again, I ask: is it worth reinventing logging functionality?
Figuring out how to write to logs atomically, creating new httpd
directives, worrying about rotation. Sure, I guess we could imitate
whatever mod_rewrite is doing, but it sort of defeats the whole goal
of not reinventing logging.
