I've recently added a Apache log class to pyflag so you dont have to go
through the whole log parser gui thingo. You can just enter the apache
logformat string (or choose from some common ones such as 'common',
'combined' etc) and it will build the parser for you. This is in the
darcs repository at pyflag.sourceforge.net but not in any of the tarball
releases yet.

I should mention though that pyflag is NOT a web log analysis program,
it's an arbitrary log analysis program. It doesn't have the built-in
analysis features such as bandwidth graphing etc of such programs. You
just use the generic interface to search and group fields as you please,
but you have to know what you are looking for.

Having said that, if anyone wants to add an parser plugin which does
higher-level weblog specific functions, I'd gladly accept the patch :)
