Not sure what's the purpose here: the emacs-server is normally expected
to be run by users, not as a system process (it's not expected to be
shared by all users of the system), whereas syslog is normally used only
for messages coming from system processes rather than from
user processes.

Can you give some additional info about what use case you're
thinking of?


PS: the "return Qundefined" is wrong, because Qundefined is a special
value that Elisp code should never see.  Return Qnil instead.
