The original purpose of DatagramTarget was to allow you to log to unix 
syslogd daemons by something like DatagramTarget + SyslogFormatter. Thus why 
there was no serialized support (and LogEvents weren't serialzable back then).

If you do decide to do that then you will probably have to create a basic 
server that collects the events aswell.
