How to consume Logstash's own messages?

Description

Other than writing an input plugin, I can't figure out how to consume Logstash's own agent log messages:

{:timestamp=>"2014-07-04T12:47:22.940000-0700", :message=>"Using milestone 1 filter plugin 'syslog_pri'. This plugin should work, but would benefit from use by folks like you. Please let us know if you find bugs or have suggestions on how to improve this plugin. For more information on plugin milestones, see http://logstash.net/docs/1.3.3/plugin-milestones";, :level=>:warn}

Am I overlooking something simple? If not, would be nice to have Logstash log using a format such as JSON.
