I agree that I would like to find the best technical solution; I'm just not 
sure that a "syslog-logrotate" package is it.  As pointed out in a different 
part of this thread, even sysklogd and rsyslog have different log rotation 
scripts due to restarting a different daemon.

It was previously suggested that all three should use the same pid file and 
therefor be able to be restarted by the logrotate script regardless of which 
one was running.  I don't like this method since it creates a problem if 
someone accidentally starts two syslog daemons at the same time.

I don't mind contacting the Red Hat person in charge of sysklogd if we find a 
good solution; I just feel it would be unlikely to get a change to such a core 
package into RHEL.
