syslog-ng 2.0.x supports milliseconds in timestamps, however it uses
ISO8601 timestamps for that purpose. As I see the snipped quoted here
uses a BSD timestamps with milliseconds added.
Gee.. At least they could have added year information too.
So, upgrading to 2.0.x will not solve your problems, but there's a
chance that I can change this there.
