Payloads sizes measured differently for compact and "classic" ingestion formats #878

When event payload size for "classic" JSON events is measured, the size considered is the normalized, on-disk event size.

For compact JSON payloads, the size of the payload as sent by the client is considered.

This means that, especially when large property values are duplicated inside message templates, there's a big difference between what's allowed in either case.

To fix this, we should either change the way "classic" payloads are measured during ingestion, or switch Serilog.Sinks.Seq to use compact: true by default (effectively obsoleting the old format).
