Yes I do that I also redirect error logs to a script that scrubs IPs
out since there isn't an Apache directive to do this. But Content
Management Systems (CMS), message board software and other such things
often do their own logging into their database backends.
The idea is a system wide solution that allows any user group to
install any semi-random PHP/MySQL frob without having to hack around
trying to find and disable its IP logging.
