You now got my attention!
Depends on what you want you might be able to use external logging 
helper for that.
I am unsure if it is possible to use two access log directives in the 
configuration and Amos or others can answer that.
It is pretty simple to implement since the input data will flow like any 
access log lines but to a program.
Then you can update some DB live.
There is an option to even use the same log daemon for both logging and 
http interface for the statistics but I will not go this way now.
I have tested and it seems possible to use two access_log directives.
I am unsure how to implement the idea of both access.log and external 
logger combined.
But there is sure the option of:
"access_log tcp://host:port"
Which if you will write a TCP service will make your life easy.
I am unfamiliar with the logging protocol but it seems like the wiki can 
help with that.

*I am willing to write an example tcp log daemon for the squid in 
golang\ruby\python for the squid project if one is not present in these 


* Testing 3.5.10 RPMs is in progress.
