Basically at the present time I find it annoying to setup logging for each of
the components of the OpenLDAP packages because logging isn't any way I can see
centralized.  For instance some things log to messages others log to local3 or
local4 etc... it's hard to keep track of and might be better accomplished using
some sort of shared logging mechanism within the OpenLDAP programs that would
still utulize syslog, but at the same time filter things out to the proper
place.  This isn't a bug so I'd just throw this in the enhancements section or
something, if you think it's a feasable I can work out some patches to make it a
go.  If you don't think it it's necessary or it's already being done in the
development version let me know, I think people might find it much more useful,
as I'm noticing many people's systems aren't even configured to use those
particular logging channels (local*.*).
