rsyslog output plugin wrangling...

For some hours, I am fighting with parts of rsyslog design around 2006 (or so): initially, we thought that all actions will be terminated by canceling their thread WHEN they not shutdown within the queue shutdown timeout. Then, we saw that it was better to at least try it cooperatively (cancellation is still required if that does not work). Now, with imrelp, I have a situation where I need to pass some information down to librelp when it comes to termination. Supposedly a very simple thing to do (a single call). ... unfortunately, the interface does not provide access to the action in question.
