Does anybody know why syslogd does not split messages before sending
them to remote machine but do it for local log? Maybe because current
implementation of syslogd does not consider facility/priority value of
the messages and send them all?
I am working on support of remote log in syslog.conf and so I should
take into consideration fac/prio of every message, so maybe it will be
better to split messages by '\0' before sending them anywhere?
