Is there a way to have the Event Log Monitor automatically monitor event sources that didn't exist when the monitor was created?

If I install a new app or service that logs events to the Application Log the Event Log Monitor will happily ignore that new source because it wasn't on that machine originally.

If the All Sources source at the top is checked, new sources will be read as they are added.

While I don't disagree with that, I shouldn't have to. Mostly because there are many things in there that really don't matter.

Having a check box that says "if you see something new, add it" would be useful.
