Thanks, I'll have to look into this.

I actually have EL4/EL5 packages at my website that I've maintained for many
years (http://www.silfreed.net/download/repo/packages/syslog-ng ,
https://rpm.silfreed.net:8002/file/tip/syslog-ng/) that allows parallel
installation of sysklogd, rsyslog, and syslog-ng.

No clue, it's quite the pain.  And getting the other syslog-facility
maintainers to coordinate on making this pain-point go away has had very slow
