Is it worth considering patching misc/syslog.c so that openlog() uses an
alternate socket location as defined in syslog.h? In other words, I feel
that if I change _PATH_LOG in syslog.h and recompile apps, they should "do
the right thing". I shouldn't have to recompile glibc in order to
gracefully repoint everything to a different syslog socket.
Or how 'bout making the path to the log socket configurable at runtime?
