That's only doable if the message occurred only once. Most of the logwatch 
report is about recurrent stuff and it would make the report huge if it 
reported the list of times of each event.

Note that the point of logwatch is to report unusual activity (kinda like 
tripwire), so that you know *whether* to look deeper into the detail logs.
