    don't have a freebsd box to check.
    i checked the man pages on solaris and openbsd before i posted the
    message.  they don't have a "-v" option.
    and near as i can tell, having finished my quick read of the syslog-ng
    documentation and FAQ, the only way to get that info out of syslog-ng is
    to use the FACILITY and/or LEVEL macros in file names.
    more info eagerly awaited -- t.
