Aparently I stand corrected.  Apologies and thanks for your

As I said, I am not opposed to using syslogd and think starting there
is a good idea.  If you believe it is feasible without causing
recursive RPC calls, I'll believe you.  My only concern was that
if, say, 'pfinet' needed to log something and syslog were configured
to write to UDP ports, pfinet would have to write to a UDP port
causing perhaps a recursive loop of log calls.  I realize that this
is ultimately a pathological case, but it's worth considering.

I missed that.  Apologies.  Anything I can do to help?  Do you take
volunteers, or have I proven myself unworthy by reason of ignorance.
