Oh, and by the way... Would you be willing to try to create a
"syslog.conf RFC" out of this discussion? This popped up as an idea on
the IETF mailing list, but it did not evolve.
I am not sure if I have to write more on it than already present in the
BSD man page on syslog.conf
(http://netbsd.gw.com/cgi-bin/man-cgi?syslog.conf). I think that or
already sets a recommendation for new implementors.
The problem is that there are quite a lot of extensions around -- how
should we decide which are useful and which are unnecessary?
Also some implementations already made incompatible extensions. The most
important is probably the pipe action (|), which pipes to a fifo on
Linux (sysklogd and rsyslog) but to an exec()'d program on BSD.
