I did, but the man page states that keep_logs is similar to rotate, so it
sounds like if I used this option, it would still rotate the log file if
it went above the max_log_file size, which I don't want to happen.  I
suppose I could just set max_log_file to 99999 or something (if that's
supported).  Typically, uncompressed log files for ~400 clients on the
central server end up being around 3-4Gb.

Thanks for all the help so far; I think I'm almost there.
