I would say that streaming logs in a _reliable_ fashion is a non-trivial 

If you want to make sure that you do not miss any log lines, you cannot 
simply just
push them over the connection.  You will never know what messages was 
received on the
other side after a loss of the connection.

That's why people have developed things like 
http://www.librelp.com/relp.html and

I guess it all depends on your requirements.

I would also like to point out that Twisted would be a perfect match for 
such a thing.
