    No need - just get syslog-ng and change the template to something like we use:
    destination d_messages {
    Note: be wary of the "$R_ISODATE" - that makes timestamps like
    "2003-10-28T03:17:34+0000" - which is great in our multi-national
    environment - but breaks most syslog output parsers out there :-( You'd
    probably want to stick to the standard "$DATE" or "$FULLDATE" variable
