I read the whole bug, and thread between my first and second replies to
the logwatch Email list.  That's what got prompted me to send the second
reply!  (Silly me, not reading the whole thing before writing).

As I mentioned, I still get a few unsorted lines.  I can add that to the
few listed in the Debian Bug, and try to get a patch together in the
next few days.  Exim 4.60 came out since I last tweaked too, so there
may be messages from there that are not otherwise caught, so I'll see if
I can find any info in the latest Exim docs as well.

I'm not sure if this makes sense from an architecture point of view
though.  It seems that one of the [eventual] goals of the logwatch
script is to be able to allow generation of report information that's
not *just* from yesterday, but also from other (possibly arbitrary)
dates, and the eximstats program (at least my copy) will not do that.
