	It should be fairly straightforward to dump the contents of the
	.log files MRTG generates into a spreadsheet/database/whatever.
	The files are of a format laid out in "logfile-format.txt", in
	the doc subdirectory under MRTG 2.7.5, and are located in 
	the designated WorkDir with the .html and .gif files. If you
	don't have reasonable shell access to the MRTG host, the .log
	files should be http-accessible.
