i see that you are a believer in the KISS principle, too :)

that's something i dance with, too... especially since my targeted market is a 
SOHO firewall product... we want alerts and possibly active blocking of those 
causing the alerts... all the rest of the fluff'n'stuff is much much too much 
and over the top... i can see that for possibly some monstrous corporate entity 
but way over here in the shallower end of the pool we don't have room for all 
that nor do those running in our sphere want to be burdened with all of that...

yeah, i can just see a single mother of three setting up the firewall package, a 
database server and some diagnostic workstation along with the one or two other 
machines, game consoles and smartphones they may have on their SOHO network...
