Could you please provide a rationale to why this is needed?  How things works
now, is that the systemd-journal picks up everything; including various
additional meta-data which syslog does not support.

Now you get the log data with: `journalctl -u openvpn-{client,server}@CONFIG}`
And this also provides filtering possibilities as well, like '-b' (only log
entries since last boot) or '--since yesterday'.

If you want logged data to syslog, have a look at the journal integration
rsyslog provides - which can also include the additional meta-data:
