The interface of read-syslog should allow for a compatible
implementation for syslog-ng, though I don't know syslog-ng well
and it's config files are fundamentally different from what both
msyslog and sysklogd use. My implementation of read-syslog works
with msyslog and sysklogd since they are so similar.
A year ago I wanted to work out a way for syslogs to be
exchangeable in debian, and reduce the amount of unclean cruft
that came with sysklogd being the only syslog in debian for a
very long time. Much didn't move since then, but sysklogd made
some important improvements in it's ability to be removed.
Options are optional.
