That is (in spirit) exactly what log_accum does...

:)  Ah if only it were so easy...

Yeah.  It's a case of making the tool fit the current situation.  We've
got some Windows only code under cvs control where the initial projects
were created with normal windows directory names (ie some had spaces).
Till now it didn't matter; only ever dealt with the projects on windows.  
But the loginfo scripts run on the server, so they've gotta handle the
naming in our current projects.  <dream>Someday maybe I'll get to clean up
the repository. </dream>
