It would also be useful to have some simple filtering mechanism in the log; for example, filtering on SIP or RTP can help diagnose IP PBX issues with the firewall or SIP trunk connectivity problems.

You can end any chain (default or custom) with something like:
$IPT -A INPUT_lan -j LOG --log-prefix "IPT_lan-Rej "

This means that any packet which doesn't match your earlier rules in the chain, will be logged and then rejected. Use with custom chains to log desired packets. Use whatever you like instead of the "IPT-lan-Rej ". Then use "syslog | grep ..." and rejoice.
