there is program "since" that can do the same.

We use syslog for remote logging (not only apache logs). We have "tail -f"
running over logfiles, that sends its output to remote syslog machine via
"logger" program which sends it to syslog. (I know this is not the most
reliable or effective way, but currently we don't have anything better).

Another way is sending logfiles directly via pipe to logger program, apache
can do this.

And I was still talking about syslog ;-)
