Watchdog could use some stronger filtering as well as search. I get tons of
not found hits from spiders looking for links to its pre-drupal heritage.

1. I'm not sure there is a patch for it, but managing URL aliases can be a
bit of a pain (eg. URL aliases for taxonomy terms -- and folksonomies in

2. The watchdog is a really large list of events that is hard to consume.

Really large lists of items need a search functionality: users, nodes and
comments have a search functionality, but there is no such thing for path
aliases or watchdog events.

Hope that helps, but chances are this was rather obvious.  ;-)
