Yes, currently this is an application. I'll get to the source back on
Monday, and mail it to you. It's possible to run it as applet, too, but
in this case I'd rather redirect the log messages back to the
originating host, because otherwise it would be impossible to reliably
determine the moment of death (and I guess it would be much faster).

Absolutely, no.

The solution for this may be the distributed architecture with multiple
listener hosts.
