half that patch has dos newline crap, please fix

what kind of filesize difference does this make ?  if it's significant,
should make this a build option

What's the point in duplicating syslog misfeatures? It already does too
many things: listens on /dev/log,  writes to files, rotates logs, sends
UDP packets... all of those should be separate small utilities btw...

I am using several programs, which write same log message over and over.
The message looks like this
"Written 28820 bytes to socket."
Because of that, syslogd uses more CPU then normal. If the duplicated
messages were suppressed, all would be solved. I see this as an important
feature, which I would certanly used if it was there.
