How much larger is the object-file for the no-login port compared
to this minimal one? (particularly now that /sbin is dynamically
linked). If Wes wants to import no-login, the syslog capability
certainly seems worth a few extra bytes to me. And it seems
reasonable to go with code which people have already been using
for some time now.
This would have been much more of a bikeshed back when it would
have been comparing a sh-script to a statically-linked binary,
but it doesn't seem like much of one now. (IMO)
