Hello Nicolas,
  you're showing a very nice app!

I have a question for you: is it architecturally feasible to split the 
application into a (multiplatform / multiOS) log parsing library and a 

It's because it could be really helpful to integrate the log parsing even on a 
deeper level inside the pillars of KDE (say, "solid"), since even nowadays 
many useful information from the system can only be found in logs.
This way you won't only show logs (and you do it really good in KSystemLog) 
but you will give a desktop-wide feedback to the user too.
