Was wondering if it would be feasible to add in an option to set
the syslog facility as well as the syslog type. Currently you have
the --log-level which is nice for setting the syslog priority, but
it would be even nice to have a --log-facility that would allow you
to set a default logging facility as well as per-packet ones.
Would be nice to set a default facility so I can tell it to use
LOCAL4 or something and tell syslog to send those to /var/log/firewall
for example rather then having to grep and filter through
/var/log/messages. I understand being able to set a log prefix
makes that simple for grepping, but I'd prefer to just be able to dump
them into their own file.
I'm not a subscriber to the list, so please cc me with any responses
you care to make.
