- Check the consequences of the change (what about tools that rely on
  /usr/sbin/syslog-facility or /usr/sbin/syslogd-listfiles ?), file bug on
  packages that depend on sysklogd because of that
- Involve the rsyslog maintainer in the work
- Document the change by preparing a patch for the release notes
- Get the priorities fixed by a ftpmaster (assistant)
