This comment is generally for the daemon processes, but would require major
rework of the current logging in the PCP libraries in order to continue to
applications to log to stderr or a specified logfile.

It is very desirable for daemon processes (pmlogger, pmie, pmcd, pmdas) to log
via syslog.  This would allow for remote syslog logging, advanced filtering for
error conditions, and centralized log rotation.
