You can download my old logging patch and a simple delphi app here:
I personally have no time/interest in improving it, I simply use my
patch and look from time to time which music I didn't hear in the last
months to delete them. Feel free to use/improve it. It would be nice
if it would be added to the cvs version some day. The #1 functionality
that should be added is to split up logging in two functions e.g.
"log_into_buffer" and "write_log_buffer", so that the first is called
instead of the write_log function I used (that writes to the hdd
immediately) and the second is called each time before the hdd is
turned off and that writes the log entries that were buffered to ram
down to the hdd.
