I have always hated the three lines in /etc/syslog.conf which spams
root with far too many and far too irrellevant syslog messages, in
some cases even with several copies of them.

For the life of me I cannot understand why we feel the need to whine
like that at any root which crosses our way, so unless somebody can
explain to me why this is vital, I'll commit the following patch.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
