The horde_histories table gets filled up with tens of thousands of 
"login_failed" messages probably due to dictionary attacks.
I believe it would be more useful to log to a file instead, eventually 
the size of the horde_histories will be a problem in some installs.
Here we get a few hundred per day.

That's what databases are for.

To be useful it would have to include more information then 
login_failed. As it is now I can't really see what is is good for
