Randy, you are basically correct, and using Mayoff's dqd_log or the like to roll logs based on total disk space used is the way to go if you really need or want that.

But that's unnecessary for probably 95% of OpenACS users, and setting it up, regardless of however easy, is still significantly more complicated - minimally you need to also install one extra AOLserver module and DJB's multilog. So it would be nice to explain how to do so in the docs, but the out of the box configuration OpenACS provides should just use the simplest, time-based log rolling configuration possible, without any extra external dependencies or complications.
