Loginfo is special - stdin is a formatted message (presumably designed 
for sending to email originally), so you can't change that easily.

If you send the file list the standard input you lose the other 
information, so you have to format it manually into the command line or 
standard input... it's not something that'll work as a default because 
we have to be compatible, but try:

DEFAULT perl filter.pl %r/%p << Log Message:\n%m\nFiles:\n%{sVvt}\n

Which calls the filter with the logical path (use %R/%p for the physical 
path), with the log message and complete list of files in the standard 

btw. I just wrote the filter line off the top of my head so might need 
fiddling if it doesn't work...
