Would anyone be opposed to me merging in CLOG support?

This would allow someone to set the size of a log file and syslogd would automatically keep the file size from growing larger than specified. This is useful for embedded system applications and could even be useful for system administrators if they wish to keep their log files at a certain size.

I should note that this is not intrusive to normal operations since one would need to specify their logging filename somthing like this:

* %/var/log/system.log

The URL for addition information is: http://software.wwwi.com/syslogd/



I like the idea of the function, but someone should take a deep look at the code and verify that its clean. It also looks like they havent done anything with the patch since february 2001, wich is kind of getting old :-)
