1. Using XML just for describing the structure of the data makes no sense
because you can not use generic XML tools to process the data.
2. Compression reduces file size difference to 10%-30%.
3. Cost of 10 Gig drives will be considerablly less by the time server
vendors stop supporting legacy log formats.
4. Due to the Y2K problem, concerns for compactness is equated with
shortsightedness these days.
