Realtime gearman analysis of Drizzle query log

Working on Drizzle. A while ago the "log to gearman" module I wrote got incorporated into the main tree. The current task is to finish "get gearman via INFORMATION_SCHEMA", and then Drizzle will be able to push its query stream out into a chain of gearman based map reduce system.

So here is a question for the DBAs big system architects out there. If you had an array of database server instances, generating a compiled query log stream of many thousands of statements per second, and you could map, reduce, and analyze that query stream for "interesting stuff"...

What sorts of "interesting stuff" would you want to look for?

There is going to be a BOF on this at the MySQL Users Conference next week.
