  My input is that you shouldn't devote any more brain power to syslog
than is absolutely necessary to be barely standards-conformant.

  Software authors should not be encouraged to use syslog; instead,
they should be educated not to.

  As for timestamps, well, the right format to write them in is
obviously neither UTC nor local time, but TAI64N. :)
