Plans to have Azure compatible listeners?

We'd like to log into Azure Tables and are currently doing it via 

<add type="Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Diagnostics.DiagnosticMonitorTraceListener, Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Diagnostics, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" name="AzureDiagnostics">

inside the <trace> <listeners> block in app.config

However that doesn't really give us any flexibility in specifying the Table or formatting the items going into the log table or separating logs from the the logs generated by other azure systems (eg:  Azure caching wants to dump it's messages into the same WADLogsTable).

We ourselves will us using the Azure Table (or fall back to Azure SQL) but another cloud listener could be a native write-to-blob-file listener (vs WAD's method of writing a local file => transfer to blob).

Excellent suggestion; I'll add it to the Issue Tracker and you can vote on it.
