   Why?  You might just as easily argue that messages should go to different
   log files according to the time of day, or according to the actual text
   of the message.  Perhaps the problem is not with the syslog API, but with
   the syslog implementation.  Perhaps we need a more sophisticaed syslogd.

Why?  Because you might want all security-related log messages to go to
a single file, and thus use a separable facility.  That makes it much
easier for auditing systems to scan for security "events".
