Of course.  I'm actually parsing Apache logs on my own site, as this
covers both the Zope and non-Zope portions of my page.  The basic
analysis isn't Zope-specific, just more Zope-accessible.  For
instance, hits are returned as a list of page/count pairs, and then
you can format then as you wish with DTML.

Any of these things that I've done could be done by other log
analyzers, and I expect they have been.  They could probably be done
better: the real advantage of what I'm doing (in my own experience) is 
that I have a fair amount of control to do whatever I want, not just
what was included in the software.  Anyone who knows some Python would
be able to have a similar amount of control.

I hadn't been thinking of using PIL myself -- though it would be
relatively easy, I suppose, to add another layer that creates graphs
from the (relatively) raw data.
