It took me a while to understand what you want to accomplish, and to be
honest the only reason I understood it is that you attached a patch. :)

The reason I did not understand your original post was that I can't
remember all defined macro names in syslog-ng and $DESTIP in your
configuration snipped simply did not jump out at first. :)

In fact the patch is not that horrible :) and the idea is sane. It is
also useful when someone has a listener bound to '' and logs are
to be put on a receiving-interface specific file.

Thanks for your contribution, I'll see to adding a DESTIP support, once
I have dealt with the current blockers for 2.0.0.
