[logs] Checkpoint ng-1

A couple of questions for the list; While the GUI is great for some, I
prefer to use (insert favorite scripting language here) to parse the
logs into reports.  While looking at the NG-1 logs I've found that you
have to extract them using the 'fwm logexport' command.  Once extracted
I found that the audit log (fw.adtlog) appears to list objects by name
followed by a number (guid?) i.e. "...node1234, host_plain,
network_objects,Create,{939F6E91-33D1-4562-B791-BDC7218AD88E}".  My
questions are: 1) is there a way to default the logs to text format as
they are collected? 2) am I correct in the assumption that the number
corresponds to the object listed (or is there more information that can
be gleaned from the number and if so how).


Any additional tips or insight you'd care to add would be appreciated as
