Hmmm, I've been logging using a similar approach (REAL similar, in fact. I think by default, you'd end up with the same table structure regardless of who put it together).
But now the REAL question (and one I can't find ANY answer to: What magic SQL does one use to get anything worthwhile OUT of this data? Is there an SQLmonks.org that could help? Or is anybody interested in setting up a repository for useful open-sourced SQL code to handle log files? (i.e., glean the number of visitors? Number of visits? number of nonblack nonravens?)
I've got a few queries I've hacked together, but nothing compared to the visions of loveliness I had in mind when I started logging this info a few months ago.
