As this is historical data I don't see any reason why you'd try to get
this through the web interface. Chances are, that there you'd miss out
on some seconds or even miss whole connections if they fall in between
polling intervals.
Also the playlist logging might be interesting in that context as it
will contain metadata, which some agencies seem to require.

But that's surely something that's done on some time interval basis?
monthly, quarterly or yearly?
So why would you want to parse this out of the web interface?
