Okay, thanks for the input.  It doesn't look like this is something we want to 
merge at this point.

Yes, this is just one more reason why we need to rework the audit record 
format.  I've got more ideas on this since we last talked on-list, but I've

However, make no mistake, the audit record format will be changing, this fixed 
string format is garbage.
