Webtrends logs

Does anyone know if the Webtrends logs are portable?  Could I import them to another product such as Sitetracker or Google Urchin?  The reason I am asking is because we may be moving to another web analytic software provider.

    do you have the raw logfiles from the server or only the "meta-logs" that webtrends creates FROM the raw logs?

    We have all of the raw files.

    I think that both of these are script-based analytics tools... as far as I know there is no way to move these.  Most of these formats are proprietary.  I would call the vendors.   If you have the raw logfiles, you can move to a log-file based analytics software, however.  It seems to me that may be your only option for your historic data.
