I can't help but feel like you misunderstood what I said. Your question
is totally incomprehensible to me. I wasn't talking about some "extra
feature" of syslog, and I wasn't discussing newlines internal to log
messages. I was discussing how syslog needs to see the log messages (as
a series of messages, one per syslog() call), which is different from
how a log file needs to see them (a series of bytes, with newlines at
the end of each log message).
