I can now recognize that this wasn't a great idea. :)

> This was formerly a ticket about creating syslog logging writer, but I think we found a better and more general approach in a "raw" writer.  The raw writer would abandon the normal tab separated output from the Ascii writer and instead would be based on a templating format passed through the config filter field.  There should also be options for sending the formatted data to files, sockets, and syslog.
> This writer would open several doors for us:
>   * Direct integration from script-land with ELSA.
>   * Functional replacement for PRADS in script-land with integration into Sguil.
>   * Direct script-land integration with the metrics framework and Graphite.
> Here is a made up example of creating a metrics filter for sending data to Graphite:
> {noformat}
> Log::add_filter(Metrics::LOG, [$name="graphite",
>                                $writer=Log::WRITER_RAW,
>                                $path="tcp://",
>                                $config = table(["fmt"] = "{{metric}} {{value}} {{ts}}")]);                          
> {noformat}
