It's not valid, but I don't think the service scripts should break if someone accidentally does it. I think your suggestion of symlinking the common name so the logrotate script rotates the active one but the service script still uses a package-specific pid file is great. We could probably take that one step farther and write some common service handler scripts to re-link the syslogd.pid file to the proper daemon so accidents with starting multiple daemons and then shutting down one doesn't remove the symlink completely. Thanks for the great idea; I'll see if I can work with the other two packagers to get this going. -Doug
