Guys, keep one thing in mind:

the average user has no inclination of "processing" the logfiles with 
anything.

The average user, at best, will open the logfiles in notepad to look 
at them, and to find stuff like "what was the name of that place that 
i heard about at that or that date".

The average user runs windows, where tools such as grep/awk/sed are 
not exactly common, either.
