      Description

      There is currently no support for sending logs to the Windows Event Log.

      Windows Event Log is the standard way of logging on Windows so it's a long-term "should have" feature. This should include normal logs as well as audit logs.

      Implementation steps:
      1. Determine how our logs fits into the different event log categories/labeling system.
      2. During install register MongoDB as a logging application in the event log manager using the Win32 API.
      3. Implement a log facility for the event log in the server using Win32 API and forward logs and audit logs to it.
