This is how it is achieved in MS.NET:

>>and the entire message will be stored as an argument for this "%1"

I was speaking only about Windows because you were discussing possibilities 
on Windows as well. So these informations may help implementing event 
logging on Windows.

And of course knowing how Windows does event logging helps to mimic the same 
on other OSes.
