mR and generating common log format...

My goal is to have hits to mR saved out to a text file in common log format for analysis by Summary <http://summary.net/summary.html>.
I've been tinkering with extending logbrowser.root to handle this task. I've gotten pretty far along. Unfortunately it looks like mR doesn't store some information that a clf would need. It's not storing if the request was a GET, PUT, or etc. Also, it's not storing the HTTP version.
After diggin' around a bit it looks like my only option at this point is to alter mainResponder.log.add to grab the additional information.
What I'm hoping for is that there is a way to accomplish what I want without doing that. Some callback I may have missed? I just looked over the mR docs on frontier.userland.com. Nothing seems to fit the bill. mainResponder.log.add is called at the very last in mainResponder.respond so I can't see a way to patch into the logging process.
If it is indeed the case that there is currently no callback mechanism for mR logging, I like to request that one be added please. That way I could log any extra information that I might need in addition to the basic items Userland stores.
I can see in the future wanting to create other log file formats.
