 How is this different from the size column in /etc/newsyslog.conf?
newsyslog is run from cronjob and can not ensure that the log
size stays below  the value in newsyslogd.conf. AFAICT this can.
If I recall correctly, Wes Peters was interested in doing something
similar with syslogd in FreeBSD.
After re-reading the original message in this thread, I realize that
I misunderstood what the change was.  This is not the same idea as
the one Wes was thinking of for syslog in FreeBSD.
