The timestamp is a natural index.  You shouldn't need to run a 
distributed query for finding information about a specific incident.  
You would have to write your own custom tools to access and manage the 
db, so that's just impractical.  The timestamp as well as most of the 
other fields should be fairly easily compressible since most of the bits 
are the same.  You might as well use a regular plaintext logfile and 
gzip it.
