I'm pretty sure the fancy example I saw used a JNI logger. Parsing the 
output is of course very complex ...
Maybe support could be added for the JDK 1.4 logger.
There's also another problem: the severity is sometimes 
internationalized :-(

If the format of the first log entry is not recognized, maybe it could 
switch automatically to listview.

If that's too complex, forget it :)

That would be a nice feature :)
