[Samba] Logging to MySQL

I've written down a simple yet a bit obfuscated perl script to put
samba logs on a MySQL database, inspired on a little howto i found
some time ago googleing around.
It works by reading logs from a fifo instead of parsing actual log
files, but allows to create sparse files too. Log lines are then
parsed by matching to a regexp to extract desired values then
inserting the record on mysql.

It should be pretty configurable, it can work as a daemon and is
compatible with start-stop-daemon, but has not yet undergone much

You can get it at http://www.rovira.cat/gpl/samba-logger.pl

Read the source code for docs.

Any feedback is welcome.
