'Twas brillig, and Becker, VincentX at 09/12/10 14:17 did gyre and gimble:
> The reason why I do not wish to use the remote syslog capability is that it could be potentially locked by other components trying to log through its process. By creating a log target specific to Pulseaudio logs, the real time constraint gets better respected especially in an embedded environment.
> Another advantage is that the log source can be extracted from the Pulseaudio thread rather than the Syslog thread. It can be also convenient to log directly in a file or a remote device.
> I reattach the patch for remind and hope that it can be reviewed by Lennart.

Seem like reasonable reasons to me.

Lennart will be away for a little while longer but I'll try and remind
him about this email once he is back from vacation.
