The only thing that conflicts here is the log rotation script.

I've been told that shipping the *exact same* log rotate script as rsyslog or 
sysklogd should work as rpm won't care about the duplicate file since it 
matches exactly, but there's two problems here:
1) I don't know what "exact" is (file size, md5, timestamp, ??)
2) So far it doesn't work in practice.

So if this is definitely supposed to work I need to figure out how "exact" the 
file needs to be.
