It would be nice, but I don't know if syslog-ng supports 
it... it might, I just don't remember seeing it the last time
I read the manual.

And of course if you really want to get hardcore on logs, 
you would need a printer (or a write-once media ) on your 
master logging server and you'd keep the results forever.
Depends on who you're working for.

I think if I were going to use sql analysis I'd 
consider doing it on a different machine than the 
hardened logger. For "hardened" read "simple, stupid,
and understandable."
