While I don't have years and years of Unix experience,
alternating between a set of sizelimited logfiles does 
seem like a better fit with the overall Unix way of things.

Shouldn't those daemons writing directly to syslog 
be considered flawed and be changed to use the
proper C functions?

BTW, I'm waiting for my very own Soekris, :)
which too will run off compact flash.
