This is a very narrow viewpoint... and your later assertion that anything which
does lots of logging should invent some new mechanism instead of using syslog
really doesn't make sense to me.  The whole point of syslog is to have a 
common way of handling logging that is sufficiently flexible and efficient
that people don't have to keep re-inventing (broken) ways of logging things.
