It has been discussed and requested a lot, but you are welcome to open 
an issue. I'm not sure how to implement that but maybe others can throw 
some ideas in here.

Basically such commands run through the cgis where the logged in user is 
already shown on the html code. so it will be held during the websession 
in a global variable, probably.
so the information pipe to logs must be extended, i believe that this 
wouldn't be that hard to implement. but beware of the syntax changing in 
the logs not to screw up existing log parsers.

Kind regards,
