This is a slight exaggeration, since Apache (for example) has it's own logging
subsystem and doesn't use Syslog at all (though I think you can make it use
syslog if you want). AFAIK, this is due to the known issues with classical
syslog's behavior under extreme load.

Eventlog has it's own problems (like not including file rotation, so the log
file can fill up).

There is no reason to limit _this_ project to a single logging scheme. If the
logging subsystem is pluggable, then it can support all of these schemes without
bias towards any.
