Reading from syslog will lead to concurrency problems if multiple
server processes are spawned from inetd simultaneously.
Each process could provide its own log, on a heavily trafficed machine
that should be done anyway.
Frankly, I atleast am not for or against adding this (I can't really
see the benefit of such a feature, but I can't see why adding it would
be bad). Maybe Sergey or Alain can pitch in.
