I think Caleb is talking about the filenames, not the timestamps
within the log contents.

This is hackish, but you could set a processor like this:
svlogd '!set _at_*.t && test 1 = "$#" && readable=`echo "$1" | TZ=UTC tai64nlocal` && ln "$1" "$readable"' ./main/

- Each log file would then have two names. If you want to remove the
  _at_*.s names, that could also be done withing the processor.
- The filenames in my command would look like "2015-01-05 10:56:43.015729500.t";
  if you want a different suffix or a prefix you'd have to add that.
- TZ=UTC uses UTC for the filenames, matching svlogd's -tt stamps in
  the log contents. But use TZ=right/UTC if your system clock is
  TAI-10 instead of POSIX.
