	Can you elucidate? The best way to determine what policy
 should say would perhaps be for the maintainers of the three logging
 daemon packages to reach an agreement based on current practice. If
 you could come up with a draft proposal, it would help a lot.

	I shall add the virtual package names.

 Listen, there is no courage or any extra courage that I know of to
 find out the right thing to do.  Now, it is not only necessary to do
 the right thing, but to do it in the right way and the only problem
 you have is what is the right thing to do and what is the right way
 to do it.  That is the problem. But this economy of ours is not so
 simple that it obeys to the opinion of bias or the pronouncements of
 any particular individual, even to the President. This is an economy
 that is made up of 173 million people, and it reflects their desires,
 they're ready to buy, they're ready to spend, it is a thing that is
 too complex and too big to be affected adversely or advantageously
 just by a few words or any particular -- say, a little this and that,
 or even a panacea so alleged. D.D. Eisenhower, in response to: "Has
 the government been lacking in courage and boldness in facing up to
 the recession?"
