What are people out there using to make sense of their iptables logs?

Varients of grep are not acceptable answers

I'm looking for fancy sql/php solutions. All I can seem to find is FirewallEye, which I can't seem to filter my /var/log/messages properly with, or another package 'iptables log analyser' which seems to be a fairly stagnent project (again I'm having difficulty getting this to work due to mysql backward compatability issues).
