If your system is spewing log entries, the "signal" - warning signs of a hack - get lost in the noise.
At least with a logfile you can grep for trouble (although really you want to do the opposite, anti-grep for stuff you know about).
But whatever you do it's a tricky problem, although I would tend to agree with another poster - just add a signed hash field to the current text format.

You get to keep your logs as textfiles, you can search the secure copy, almost no software has to change. Seems like The Journal done right to me.
