Can we please use /etc/syslog.d/ instead? this way we don't get locked
in any specific implementation. I'm preparing a patch for
inetutils-syslogd to support that, and it might also make sense to
require all system-log-daemon providers to support that dir as well.

Sysadmins can easily change it, and I bet most of the users do not
care much what syslogd is installed as long as it's just logging.
