The simplest and best way to fix that is to make cuirass use syslog.

Not every program has to have its own private logging implementation,
log rotator, log filterting, log rate limiter, kitchen sink etc.

src/cuirass/logging.scm is prepared somewhat for this possiblity[2], but it
doesn't yet log to syslog.

There are guile syslog bindings[1] and we should use them and then apply a
two-line patch to src/cuirass/logging.scm .
