As of this writing, this is not possible. The mongodb destination
driver of syslog-ng can only insert strings. There are plans to change
that, and I hope to find some time to do that before 3.4 becomes
stable. A quick & hacky solution could be added, and it does not
require much more than ~10-15 lines of code maybe, but I wasn't happy
with the quality of that, so I didn't write it yet.
