We've talked about it in the past, but it's not a high priority for us 
right now.  That doesn't mean we wouldn't be happy to take some patches 
in from the community :-)

It would be pretty easy to add access logging - everything would be 
logged at the same severity level (e.g. debug or info, possibly 
notice).  However, full access logging in a high volume production 
environment would likely bring syslog to its knees, unless syslog has 
good buffering and log rotation facilities.  I believe NSPR has support 
for syslog.

The problem with error logging is that we do not use a severity system 
like syslog requires.  We really only have 2 levels now - error and 
debug.  We would need to go through our existing code and "triage" the 
logging statements that use SLAPI_LOG_ERROR to assign them severities.  
Then we would need to enhance the logging API to pass the severity value 
(e.g. a new function slapi_log_error_sev or something like that).
