[logback-dev] Syslog appender: RFC 5424 and TCP support

I have an application which uses logback, and which needs to log in a
syslog using TCP, and to be compliant with RFC 5424.

Though, as far as I understand, those features aren't supported in
logback, a patch has been proposed a few years ago [1].

To put it short:
* Is there something preventing this patch from being merged?
* If the only impediment is that merging it results in several
conflicts, would it help if I propose to rebase it?
* Is there a way for me to do what I want without this patch (for
example using a SocketAppender, and with a well configured layout)?
