Having been at in 1996 and 1997 I can tell you that there were times when we were able to reconstruct some customer transactions using web server logs after databases were damaged. If it were up to me, I would at least want this to be a configuration option.

I'd be all for keeping the lights on...

IMHO, if the log gets full, the server shouldn't be down. My clients
don't care about logs. They'd rather have their site up. There should
be a separate monitoring and notification system in place for low
space threshholds...
