Geert, I think you have a point here. Let me try to answer that as well...
My motivation for this mail thread was to test the waters if this is a
valid feature request before I actually spend too much time
My expectations were to have a good discussion whether this feature
request makes sense and on how this could be implemented, particularly
the needed change/addition to iPXE settings. Michael does a good job
so far on that front. ;-)
I didn't expect that anyone would do the work for me though, however
that would be very welcome. ;-)
Michael, a syslog URI sounds like a good idea to me.
I'm not aware of any RFC other than
proposes a rather odd URI syntax IMHO.
Others seem to use URIs like `[tcp/udp]://host:port` or they have
their own schemes.
I personally find a standard URI more idiomatic and it looks like this
could be nicely handled by `uribase`, which is currently an open iPXE
pull request: https://github.com/ipxe/ipxe/pull/114
