    mmcount: message modification plugin which counts messages
    This module provides the capability to count log messages by severity
    or json property of given app-name.  The count value is added into the
    log message as json property named 'mmcount'
    Example usage of the module in the configuration file
     # count each severity of appname gluster
     action(type="mmcount" appname="gluster")
     # count each value of gf_code of appname gluster
     action(type="mmcount" appname="glusterd" key="!gf_code")
     # count value 9999 of gf_code of appname gluster
     action(type="mmcount" appname="glusterfsd" key="!gf_code" value="9999")
     # send email for every 50th mmcount
     if $app-name == 'glusterfsd' and $!mmcount <> 0 and $!mmcount % 50 == 0 then {
