In this case, FIFOs would actually be more appropriate than sockets. Sockets are analogous to TCP or UDP connections (which is no coincidence), whereas FIFOs are closer to "ordinary" file operations. But since you've already been down that road, you'll have to look elsewhere.
Have you considered processing lines from the file as they arrive, tail -f style?

Tailing it won't work either. I'm using djm's Flowd, which expects you to init() the logfile. It does not accept stdin as a interface for conversion. I'm working with djm right now, it appears the fifo problem is a bug with flowd.
