It is a great first step since this can easily be added to the
standard HTTP logging to give some extra information as to what is
going on.

I would like to see the paths being worked on (I know, this is a very
nasty problem, but maybe at least base directory of the paths, such
that I can see "/trunk" vs "/branch/2_4_16"

But this alone is a really nice little trick. (I have it on my
system right now - next to build some log processing updates to deal
with them :-)
