[Orca-users] winallator SourceFile patch error

Back around build 411 days, I constructed a patch for winallator that 
would deal with EOL issues, blank fields, and verbosity setting (versus 
always printing the line to the log, which generates tons of logs).  I 
thought I had submitted it to the build stream, but evidently not.  In 
any event, it did not test for a Windows-perfmon-type file, so it did 
break Unix data files.

Blair, if you like, I can take the task to tweak SourceFile.pm and get 
it to work with both Unix and Windows data files.  I think it should be 
easy to test the format of the timestamp field to distinguish whether it 
is unix-style or windows-style, and convert it appropriately.  I can 
also reintroduce the verbosity test to reduce the logfile noise.
