I would only file this bugs iff rsyslog will become the default. So
having a "Yes" or "No" to rsyslog now, would be really helpful to
advance in this matter.

Updating the priorities now, would probably help to get wider testing
(e.g. by people testing d-i betas [1]) and shake out any possible bugs.

I'll upload fixed rsyslog packages today or tomorrow (which will restart
rsyslog in postinst). So consider this issue fixed.


(Please keep me CCed, I'm not subscribed to debian-release)

[1] Asssuming that d-i will include rsyslog then instead of sysklogd.
