Can I do the following for a file destination?  If I can why won't it
work?  The documentation leads me to believe it does.  I've done something
similar using the $PRIORITY macro to break out some messages into
diferrent files.  I want messages to log into a date specific directory.

destination messages { file("/var/log/$DATE/messages" create_dirs(yes) dir_perm(0640));};

The global config likewise specifies create_dirs(yes);

Any help greatly appreciated.
