If not for the logfile rotation that twisted.web.server.Site wants to 
do, you could pass os.devnull as a logPath to Site's initializer. 
However, log rotation will like causes this to do something bad.

There's a private method that Site overrides (from HTTPFactory) that 
controls part of this behavior.  It might be useful to have a public API 
for that instead.

Would you like to file an enhancement ticket in the issue tracker 
describing the use case?
