I have no experience with splunk, but I know such a plugin has been added
to logstash recently:

Leaving the splunk vs logstash debate for another time, what I'd like to
point out is that the way it was done for logstash is probably the way to
go for splunk too: grab the varnish API bindings for your favorite language
and directly push the logs to splunk as structured data, instead of trying
to parse and recompose the multi-line output of varnishlog.
