Comment(by phobos):

 Why two VMs? Why not just sanitize the logs on the same VM, purge the
 unsanitized logs, and let webalizer/awstats run against them? My concern
 is we're creating lots of admin overhead for little gain. The webserver
 logs are already fairly sanitized. It's not the end of the world if they
 are leaked. And, we don't need to keep all of this data hanging around.
 The output of webalizer or awstats should be sufficient to see the
 necessary statistics. If the machine dies and we lose all of our logs, oh
 well. We don't use them now anyway. We're assigning too much value to
 these logs and the data contained within them.

 Why webalizer AND awstats? We should choose one and be done with it.

 And while I'm whining, stats.tpo is too generic, how about webstats or
 weblogs for the domain?
