enhanced multi-threaded syslogd

Rsyslog is an enhanced syslogd supporting, amongst others:

 * reliable syslog over TCP and SSL/TLS
 * on-demand disk buffering
 * email alerting
 * writing to MySQL or PostgreSQL databases (via separate output plugins)
 * permitted sender lists
 * filtering on any part of the syslog message
 * on-the-wire message compression
 * fine grained output format control
 * backup log destinations

It is quite compatible to stock sysklogd and can be used as a drop-in replacement. Its advanced features make it suitable for enterprise-class, encryption protected syslog relay chains while at the same time being very easy to setup for the novice user.
