Logging to pipe

I'd like to use syslog-ng for centralized logging.  I looked through
the archive and found that the reason that logging to a device or pipe
not being supported is because of speed concerns (too slow).

How slow is it?  If I create a pipe with mkfifo and then write my
nginx logs to it, is performance going to be terrible?
