Sorry, my bad. The $PRI is the correct macro I should use.

I have a question regarding how syslog-ng treats "priority" and "level"
value from the logs. According to RFC, "priority" is different than
"level". However, it appears to me that syslog-ng use "level" value for
"priority" as well. 
My questions are:
1. Is that true that syslog-ng use "level" value for "priority" as well?
2. Is there a reason behind this behavior?
3. Is there a plan to change/fix this?
