Instead of looking at this as a 'new default logger', perhaps it would be 
better to look at this as a 'rsyslogd is obsoleting sysklogd'.  Think of it 
purely within the scope of one package is replacing the other, due to things 
like sysklogd being dead upstream. In that context, we can do the replacement 
now and be happy.

It's a different subject as to if we want to "switch the default logger" or 
perhaps "switch to different logging options by default", and that could use 
some discussion with various folks.  However that is an aside to the pure 
technical thing of rsyslogd is replacing sysklogd.
