Yeah, and unfortunately, syslog is a prime example. :-)

Luckily for us, I think svnserve won't be too likely to trigger syslog's
failings (high CPU usage, dropping lines under high load, filling up the
filesystem with logfiles).

I'll take a look at log4c, but as I said, I will be running svnserve under
daemontools, so there will also be a way to log to STDERR/STDOUT. I will also
look seriously at the Apache log code (since that can support pipes) and
wouldn't require another library.
