Yep.  I've had more of a think.  I'll simplify it to have just a "file"
and a "syslog" backend.  Instead of specifying "syslog-udp", I'll make
it "syslog:udp", so the difference can be handled in the setup function.
Then I can trivially add "syslog:lossy" (or "syslog:nonblocking").

... and then I'm getting out of the logging business...  ;-)

peace & happiness,
