They also don't *need* to be fixed to change the default, though would be
nice to fix it the default is changed...

Note that this doesn't have to be a Release Goal at all as there are no
bugs that need to be fixed except for changing the priorities of 2
packages... so in theory we can change this (well have it changed in the
overrides) right before releasing...

There is one nasty regression when switching from sysklogd to rsyslog as
default system log daemon though: rsyslog doesn't log during upgrade

I'm Cc-ing the affected maintainers for their input...
