Would anyone be opposed to me merging in CLOG support?

This would allow someone to set the size of a log file and syslogd would 
automatically keep the file size from growing larger than specified. 
This is useful for embedded system applications and could even be useful 
for system administrators if they wish to keep their log files at a 
certain size.

I should note that this is not intrusive to normal operations since one 
would need to specify their logging filename somthing like this:

*			%/var/log/system.log

The URL for addition information is:
