Interesting idea.  I just tried this briefly and I see how it would do
the job.  In my test case it logged about 8 times more data per GET
than without 'log_mime_headers'.

As someone else asked, could you share your script for converting that
data into combined log format as expected by log analyzers?  It looks
like a simple Perl script would do the job, extracting referrer and
user-agent data when available from the corresponding headers.  Are
there any tricks to that?
