... although, yes, it's a bit archaic that there are as standard
LOG_UUCP and LOG_NEWS facilities in syslog(3) -- neither of which are
much used nowadays -- while there is only the generic LOG_DAEMON for
things like webservers, LDAP, XMPP, PPP and many other network services,
and nothing at all for system maintenance type things like updating
packages.
