Can I just add

I hate binary log files.

I don't need /var/log/messages to be in a database format. There isn't enough random access of these things to warrant database usage. Now I need some journal doohicky instead of cat, less and grep.

Its just another level of complexity I don't need. I don't need to do db queries, chained greps are fine.

I'm happy for parse-able formats, just don't hide the data away somewhere I can't get to it.
