If we plan on printing these errors somehow, what are the chances they could be
handled in a way that syslogd could intercept them?  I have a serial console on
my alpha, and don't really watch it.  All my machines send thier logs to a
central log host, which processes them, and I watch that one.  It does me no
good to have errors being reported to a serial console which isn't monitored
most of the time.
