Things like systemd can intercept stdout and log them.  So if you just
send debug messages to stdout after systemd starts Samba, then systemd
will put stdout into the journal thing and optionally pass it on to
rsyslog.  I think I've tested this.

I think someone should experiment with systemd logging.  If logging
header-less to stdout is the most efficient way of pushing out lots of
debug info then we probably don't want to lose that...

peace & happiness,
