I think your goal is very different from what Brooks wants to do.
He is not trying to cut down any verbosity in the /etc/newsyslog.conf
file, he is trying to make it possible to easily redirect the file.
If I understand what you want to do, I would prefer to implement it
in a different manner.

I will MFC it if Brooks doesn't, but I do not think it needs to be
done right now. I would prefer to wait until after 5.3-RELEASE is
