What else would you want to do with a malformed rule?

> silently (!)

If there are other places to log to or rsyslog can write to stderr, it does so.

> Where do you get a warning?

If you run rsyslog in debug mode, it writes to stderr. If there are rules to
log messages with the respective priority, they get logged. Provided you won't
create typos in those specific rules.

What's your opinion on the proposed solution?
