Passing variables to access_log, error_log names

I am configuring an automagic virtual hosting on my private machine, to
serve myself projects which I currently work on. Configuration I'm using
is like this:

server {
  listen 80;
  server_name ~^(www\.)?(?P[^.]+)$;
  root /home/ajgon/htdocs/$project;
  access_log /var/log/nginx/$ main;
  error_log /var/log/nginx/$ info;
  include lang/php;

Everything is working as expected - except one thing. I'm getting two
log files with following names:
for any Vhost.

Is there any sollution to make nginx parse the variable and set proper
log name?

Greets from Poland and thank you for any help!
