I cannot see any reason why, once the system is up and running, even

I can see how internal locking is important. However, by using
another translator to call syslog instead of the original (eg
logrelay instead of proc) don't we bypass the problem? Syslog does
lock but from within logrelay, leaving proc free to continue doing
whatever was doing. All proc did was sent an asyncronous message
to proc which i don't think it blocks it's operation much.
