    Nice? Efficient? You've got to be kidding!
    If TCP/IP had been designed using the same principles as syslog, then there
    would be no Internet and we would not be having this discussion, because:
    * half the data would never show up
    * the network address would be missing
    * the IP address would be written in english as "please send this packet to
    * Or completely differently if the developer felt like it, or made a typo.
    There are two kinds of simple - simple/elegant and simple/broken. Syslog is
    a model example of the latter.
