No one has touched on cronolog. There are two versions of cronolog, one for use with pipe, and the apache module (still beta).

As with any logs rotate that gets fed via pipe, you'll spawn extra child processes that eats up all kind of system resources. The apache module doesn't do that.

Still yet another interesting solution is PgLOGd. It uses FIFO, backend Postgresql, backup file overflow, and it's FAST.
