Sounds good. One thing though - will you allow import from alternate log 
sources. For isntance currently one of our systems logs to syslog and another 
is a home-brew log toolkit with funny formats. WOuld I be able to write 
adapters to receive log info from them?

Oh and is it realtime or only post mortem? ie do you catch logs as they run 
or do you only read the file once? etc.
