or, how about how to make analog/reportmagic ignore lines in the log files
that are comments?  since iis has always inserted new header rows whenever
the server is stopped/started or the columns to report on are changed, i'd
say it's not unreasonable to ask the reporting software to correctly ignore
those lines.
