I'm not sure if it's worth to change the openlog interface. It
contains the identity as first parameter already.
Wouldn't it be enough to add a registry key for an application to
point to the Cygwin DLL as message file?
Personally I would favour to use always the one and only Cygwin
registry key to avoid polluting the registry with entries for all
Cygwin applications using syslog.
