What I suspect will happen is we'll have operations wanting to get the 
logs (for error checking and so on) on one machine ( and I'll 
want to see "interesting" events on another machine (perhaps I have a feeling that John's method will work for that.

What I would *really* like is to have a sort of reflector architecture, 
where the 10.* machines multicast on the local net, a couple of 
redundant failover machines reflect these logs over the internet to 
another network, and a couple of redundant receiving machines over 
there reflect these packets into a multicast onto *their* local 
network. But I'm not sure that's possible without writing my own 
program to do the "reflect" part (I'm sure it's possible if I do that).
