Bill, yours seems like a good implementation, but thought I'd share 
mine too. In etc/receipt.html, I put:

[comment] urchin log [/comment]
[log file=logs/urchin.txt type=text hide=1 interpolate=1]
![value mv_order_number]	[data session host]	[time][%d/%b/%Y:%T 
%z][/time]	shopalert	[data session id]	[total-cost 
noformat=1]	[salestax noformat=1]	[shipping noformat=1]	[if value 
b_city][value b_city]	[value b_state]	[value b_zip]	[value 
b_country][else][value city]	[value state]	[value zip]	[value 
country][/else][/if]	[data session browser]	-
[item-list][value mv_order_number]	[data session 
host]	[time][%d/%b/%Y:%T %z][/time]	[item-data products 
SKUID]	[item-data products FullDescription]	[if-item-data products 
Color][item-data products Color] [item-data products Size1] [item-data 
products Size2][else]-[/else][/if-item-data]	[item-discount-price 
noformat=1]	[item-quantity]	-	[data session browser]	-

(We've got some custom fields in there.) The different values need tabs 
between them, per Urchin Help specs. In my case, logs/urchin.txt is a 
symlink to the Apache logs dir for this website. Urchin processes the 
log from there, as the ownership is correct.
