i actually think thats a great idea for a seperate jep; a function to request chat logs from the server.

of course, logging would always be completly optional and up to the user, but when the user does wish to log, at this moment in time, the files that are created 
have a limited usage outside of the specific client the logs were created by (or rather, it would be a great big mess for other clients and utilities to have cross 
client log compatability).
