[Glass] Seaside object log

Within gemstone you can obviously collect the incoming data, outgoing
response and log that to a file. Beware of sync etc to ensure the file is
current upon a crash.

Another thought is generally I setup a nginx server to support the https://
SSL and then do a
fastcgi_pass seaside;
to the gemstone database.  You'd need to talk to a nginx expert or apache
guy to determine if you can log the input/output stream given to the fast
CGI interface so that you avoid having to bother with code changes in the
gemstone/smalltalk side. Might have to write a custom module.

In all this I do wonder about concurrency... But maybe sending to syslog
will work all that out for you.
