For the record (and the archive) EITHER is considered find by current,
and I personally have no recommendation.

This brings up an interesting point.


In 1.5.x and later versions of current, the current.log file itself,
which used to live in /var/log/httpd/current.log will be moving to
/var/log/current.log, due to changes in how Red Hat configures apache.

If thats going to cause big problems for someone, or someone has
sane/reasonable suggestions otherwise, NOW, not when 1.6.0 ships is the
time to bring them up.

PS. Yes, the need for
a) the server to have some kind of "test all the permissions and warn
the admin before things go wrong" code is seen and understood.
b) the server itself should never throw an exception, it should just log
something (except for the corner case of a problem with the logging) is
also seen and understood.
