Here's a brain dump of some more thinking I've done on this:

It would be good for the logging application to be written in a cross-platform way so that all ports can use it. A few techniques could be used to accomplish this:

1) The logging application's UI can be written in HTML/CSS/JS.

2) The logic for finding and connecting to processes to be logged can be inside WebKit2 itself and exposed via an API/SPI that the logging application uses.

For example, the logging application can instantiate a WKIPCLoggingServer and set itself as the server's client. The server would take care of finding applications to log and telling the client about them. The client can then choose an application to log and start receiving messages from it.

3) Messages should have a platform-agnositic "logging representation" which can be handed to the logging application via the proposed logging API/SPI.

The logging representation could be a WKDictionary with standard keys/values, or a more specific object.
