Even better would be if BF2 would support UDP-logging. I see
the benefit of good XML-logs, but sometimes it's a whole lot
easier to work with UDP-logs. I wrote a perl-utility that generated
UDL-log streams of the XML-logs generated by BF, but it would
be great if BF2 would support that out of the box.

You might wonder why I want UDP-logging, but I think they
are a lot easier to work with, when you are developing all
kinds of monitoring utilities. Which I am. It is also great for
building different kinds of "live stats".

That was bad news... We regularly query our BF-servers, collecting ping info, plotting min, max, mean and std.dev to nice graphs using cacti. And this is actually very usefull info to have, since it is telling you a lot about the stat of your server.

Removed how? Not completely I hope? How can you build
an informative online status page for servers without it?
