Considering the amount of work needed and the benefits of it,
I finally reckon that the easiest way to achieve that is to use
something like:

    grep "log-file" ~/etc/innfeed.conf | sed 's/\s//g' | sed 's/.*:\(.*\)#.*/\1/'

with a default to innfeed.log if there is no file named like the result
of this grep command.

I will soon implement that and create a decent man page for scanlogs.
I will also clean up a little scanlogs (I have also noticed that send-nntp.log
and send-uucp.log are not rotated well:  only the first log backup is kept).
