not at present time, but the hint is noticed. A compromise for the meantime
could be the usage of a logfile-statistics CGI script where you can filter
by date or other fields. I don't know the hit rate of your server to
estimate if your logfile could grow to large in a short time. Let me know
if you need a script I could mail it.
