    The sysklogd package that comes with (many/most/some?) Linuxes does NOT
    support this. Also, "-v" spits out version information with it. I just
    checked the source. Patching shouldn't be terribly bad (modify logmsg()
    and fprintlog()). If there is urgent need, I have eventually time to
    provide a patch. My sysklogd based rsyslog will be available around
    december for a preview and it will come with a configurable file format.
