Given that we now have a better logging API, syslog should indeed be
changed, but slightly differently. Instead of making syslog look like a
file, why not use the logging API directly? That is to say, add a
SyslogObserver, and then
twistef.python.log.addObserver(SyslogObserver().notify). notify() will
be called with the low-level dict of the log messages, which would give
you a lot more flexibility.
