solving lnav truncate files

lnav is an awesome tool for browsing logs.  I'm not sure what are most of the people doing with logs.... tail -f? grep?  anyway...

Sometimes log files get suddently truncated, and when you're doing development, you don't want lnav to be always refreshing itself with the current contents of the files.

just using a bit of unix magic, we can log our files with "lnav <(tail -F logs/access.log)".
