This might be a controversial issue but I think today's programming 
languages provide powerfull tools to process ASCII data under the form of 
If contest logs would come under the XML format with standard tags to ID the 
fields, parsing logs would be relatively easy.
The .Net platform has some nice built in routines to write data to or read 
from XML where minimal code is required.

I think this applies to contest logs:
XML, in combination with other standards, makes it possible to define the 
content of a document separately from its formatting, making it easy to 
reuse that content in other applications or for other presentation 
environments. Most importantly, XML provides a basic syntax that can be used 
to share information between different kinds of computers, different 
applications, and different organizations without needing to pass through 
many layers of conversion.
