I never tried it, but isn't it achieved when we use Windows Event
Logging API?

To my understanding, we were talking about Windows unmanaged API
to implement EventLogImpl (or whatever we are going to have)
that works only under Windows. We are not going to mimick the
entire event system for non-Windows land.

If anyone tries to implement it, that would be fine though.
