[syslog-ng]mark() option?

A bit of an operations question, but one I've never found an answer to ..

what is the purpose of ---MARK---?  I know it just fills up my logs, but I
never really understood why I'd want that ...

Suggestions?  What do other people use it for?

sorry, mark is not implemented...
