I like this.  Two minor points regarding the actual terminology; I'd like
to be a little more consistent and identify some "keywords".  Right now
the word "log" is combined with other words in a bunch of ways (logging,
logger, logfile, syslog, log_foo).  How about:

. logging, logging_subsys (common keyword "logging")
  for the config file section tags

- to_syslog, syslog_facility, syslog_priority (common keyword "syslog")
  for every parameter related to syslog

- to_logfile, logfile, logfile_priority (common keyword "logfile")
  for every parameter related to logfile

And then we have some values that are "on/off" and others that are
"yes/no"; let's pick one.
