Hrm. That's pretty much what I'm doing now. But it would be really nice if
the proxy were to dump an entry right into a database instead of a log file.
I can't imagine that this would require TOO much coding. This would allow
for the databases to be current, something that would be difficult with
shell scripts. 


Two friends were out drinking when suddenly one lurched backward off his 
barstool and lay motionless on the floor.
	"One thing about Jim," the other said to the bartender, "he sure
knows when to stop."
