Actually, this is what we do.  Last year we offered an (admittedly
expensive) bespoke log rotator written in Perl for just this purpose. 
It was rejected on the grounds that it didn't do anything Apache's
rotator didn't do, so I didn't pursue it.  I'm willing to put it up
on gborg, though, if anyone thinks it'll be worth having around. 
FWIW, we use ours in production.
