Well, what do you mean by "log"? All contents of all files or alert.log
contents only?

I was thinking of doing the same thing for MySQL logging, but there seems
to be little value in that: the logs are pretty much free form text and no
sensible schema can be designed. RDBMS will be just as good as a plain
text file...

Do share the code, if/when its created.
