Not for MESSAGE, which is abused to replace proper documentation, but
for the missing "admin manual" that should be in
share/doc/bareos/admin-guide.txt, and fragments in

Configuring syslog is something people installing daemons should already
know.  I'm happy to have them helped out with docs, but it's an abuse of
MESSAGE, which is for truly exceptional things.


But, for LOG_DAEMON and LOG_ERR, there is no config needed.

So probably the default config file should be patched to use syslog
normally.  syslog really is the normal and preferred approach.
