Currently the idea goes like this: if you need routing inside the collector
use nxlog if not use filebeat.
I fear when we start to work around collectors inabilities we end up in
hairy ball of processes. In the end the Sidecar is
a configuration helper and not a feature compensator. And there is still
the option to simply contribute to the Fielbeat project and implement a
multi output feature, or ask the Elastic guys for it.
