system and kernel logging services

socklog, in cooperation with the runit package, is a small and secure
replacement for syslogd. There are three main features syslogd provides:
receiving syslog messages from an unix domain socket ("/dev/log") and writing
them to various files on disk depending on facility and priority.  receiving
syslog messages from an udp socket ("0.0.0.0:514") and writing them to various
files on disk depending on facility and priority.  writing received syslog
messages to an udp socket ("a.b.c.d:514") 

socklog provides these features with the help of runit's runsvdir, runsv, and
svlogd, provides a different network logging concept, and additionally does log
event notification. 

svlogd has a built in log file rotation based on file size, so there is no need
for any cron jobs or similar to rotate the logs. Log partitions can be
calculated properly.
