Ah!  I'm trying to solve a similar problem with my json-streaming-logs 
package.  I'm planning on doing some testing and getting that fixed 
soon.  I think it's still a little broken right now, but I can 
definitely sympathize with your trouble.  Hopefully there'll be some 
guidance on this from me (or you!?) soon. :)
