syslogd and netfilter

You are, actually, exactly correct. I was wrong about this (this is to
teach me not to tell people how to do something I haven't done myself...)
So, completely ignore everything I said. You can't do it simply, because
all of the log messages are going to come from the kernel.
The next step would be for me to go out on a limb again (see how well I
don't learn from my mistakes?) and suggest a package that I haven't used
yet, but is on my list of cool things to try sometime Real Soon Now...
syslog-ng (http://www.balabit.hu/en/products/syslog-ng/) According to the
documentation, it has the capability to log syslog messages to destinations
based on cool things like regex's.

I got the impression --log-level was an integer 0 .. 7 coresponding
to emergency .. debug
