i could do that.  it just feels a little strange since
'syslogd-listfiles' is supposed to output the list of logs to rotate
daily, and 'syslogd-listfiles --weekly' is supposed to do the same for
those to be rotated weekly.

moving the script doesn't seem like it should be the "Debian Way".
how would i go about making the ppp log file rotate daily (for
example)?  this isn't going to be possible using syslogd-listfiles, as
far as i can tell.

anyway, this isn't that big a deal to me.  if this isn't possible with
syslogd-listfiles, i'll just install my old bo scripts...
