I guess my point is that "unreadable" binary logs are just as good as "no binary logs". If you make the job of logging easier, but do nothing on the replay (post processing) side then you really have not saved many users anything considering that the infrastructure (source/sink/filters) is practically the same. By the time I write a "generic replay service", I would be one small step away from a "generic logging service". The end result is that the output of Boost.Log is most suitable for human analysis without an eye toward making machine analysis easier.
