Ok. Let's go with that. Do read syslog, but also read syslog.conf. Just 
create a new user facility and have your script call logger(1). The new 
facility will be forwarded by the syslog running on each machine (because 
of what you're going to add to syslog.conf) to a central server which will 
act as a collector for all of the messages. Q.E.D
