What's the point?  The socket directory only contains a handful of  
inodes which will sit in the inode cache (if they don't, you've got  
far deeper problems) and the log directory isn't used other than for  
weird corner cases.  I can imagine if you do a lot of logging there  
might be some point, but otherwise, why bother?
