I have already tried Leopard flower. I could not get it to work. But it also is not available in the ubuntu repositories. I tried it more for experimentation than in an attempt to really use it.
I think that an ubuntu-firewall-log that can report the application that generated a log report should be available to the wider ubuntu community in the repositories. Either the Main or Universe repositories. As you said in an earlier post, this helps with security et.al.
