Thanks for the suggestions!  Those both look great for what I was going to
do.  One other thought I had after reading those suggestions, if we're doing
web server logging, we can also parse the logs using webalizer or awstats.
I know apache provides file size and the URL that's being hit, but what if I
want to do custom referral tracking?  We append ref=foo to our links to
track where people are coming from, should I look at building my own
solution for that, or do existing tools like awstats suffice for that as
