Well, I think this is useful and maybe even required for secure
operations. But if you do not intend to support relay mode, then
you'll probably never see why it could be important. It's of interest
for relays only and if you do not expect to drive ones with the stock
syslogd, I wouldn't invest too much thinking into that :)
