Let's see, there's logwatch, smartctl, cron, *my nightly backups*... :-) 
(Oh, and apcupsd for some users.)

I mean, it's not like there's not really a use case for syslogd on a 
single-user desktop either, right? ;-)

(I'm actually serious. If you're going to break cron and logwatch, why 
keep syslogd around? I'd love to see a reasonable argument for keeping 
one and not the other.)
