[Zope] Zope and Log File Analysis

So I've been struggling for years now to try and provide thorough log analysis for my Zope based web site.

The big problem I have is determining "file types" without having "file extensions", since many objects are name with a simple id that doesn't contain a typical file extension.

This makes it supremely difficult to determine viewing statistics based on content type for example ... Or determining what should be concidered a "page view", and so on.

The best solution I can think of is to actually come up with standard file extensions for the various content types I use ... It's slightly annoying because of the "dot" in the ID, but otherwise, it should work ok.

Has anybody confronted this issue before? Any other alternatives I haven't concidered?

Any insight would be much appreciated!
