Thanks for the response.

While the DAEMON_OPTS variable is there and can be used for simple options
passed to the varnish daemon, this is hell for something like logformats.

Most custom logformats want the request in the log. Apache-style logs have
double-quotes all over the place. Bash interpolation of -F and the
following format is also problematic for the common user. I couldn't get it
to work and I took two hours :) I can keep this patch in my private
repository, but I'm sure I'm not the only struggling user.

Can you give an example setting the custom format to something with quotes?
Maybe I'm missing something or maybe my understanding of bash falls short
if the mark :)

Thanks for the timely reply!
