This is fine, for archival purposes. However, it does not allow
syncing the logs between machines, which could be useful.

I'd rather have them stored in a database (even if a SQLite one) and
then another tool (perhaps a plugin) to do searches and reports on
that data. Any existing plugins to that effect?
