There are parts of the config file that deal with reporting and others that deal with the actual reading in of data. Is it possible to allow different views of the same data? For example, we may want to provide one "view" of the data to executive management that is simple and easy to digest. However, as a developer, I may want to see more detailed information, such as HTTP error codes.

Is this functionality already possible within awstats? If not, could this be added to the suggestion list? For example, perhaps the presentation part of the config file could be separated out into a "view" configuration file and then a parameter added to the URL such as "view=domain.com.view" to allow different views of the same data. An added benefit would be that it could allow ALL data to be read in, but then we just manipulate the view config file to weed out hits on parts of the site that, as developers we might want to see, but they should not be counted as "official" hits on the site.
