I have been doing this with multiple log files.  It works well for the contest.  However, after the contest is completed I want to merge to a master log file for the QTH in order to do inbound/outbound QSL accounting and DXCC analysis.

The merge of log files is a pain the way it currently is setup, because you end up with a new file under a new name.  Try to merge multiple files at once and you end up with a lot of intermediate files and a really long name for the merged file.

I could manage this if it were possible to merge from the command line, but its not, so I find it inconvenient.  I was thinking about making a patch for command line merges, but I haven't had the time to do so yet.

If such a patch were made, would it be useful to others?

This is where the multiple log file feature of xlog really shines. If
you keep your contests/past years of logging in separate files, just
close the ones you don't need, as search only works on open files.
