I'd like to be able to specify format for a tcp type output so I don't have to parse through the entire json. File output already supports this.
[14:53] <whack> stasherslasher: by default, tcp output will send the entire json form of the event
[14:54] <whack> seems like it has no way to specify the format, hmm
[14:54] <whack> Can you file a ticket? The file output already supports it (http://logstash.net/docs/1.1.0/outputs/file#setting_message_format) so adding it to the tcp output should be trivial
