Goes through all key/value pairs present in messages and prints them to LogManager

The purpose of this box is to spy a message connection and decode its contents to the log manager. The box loops over the possible types and keys inside a message and prints the output.

This box is mostly useful for debug purpose. It allows a developper to check what arrives to a box in a human readable way.
