syslog-ng core is multiline aware, however a transport is needed that supports multiline messages.

such a transport is udp(), which has other issues. syslog() with either udp, tcp or tls supports multiline messages.

similarly unix-dgram should work for locally generated multiline messages.

the only missing thing is the ability to read local files and recognize multiline barriers, but Algernon is working on solving this.
