Speaking of syslog... Is there any way we can have MailScanner continue to 
run if syslog barfs? rather than it just dying, I know its handy to know 
when syslog dies etc etc, but thats no good to anyone if it dies at 10pm 
and is not found until the hords of no mail complaints come in at 8am,
leaving a nice queue of messages to process, thats cool if you get 100 
messages overnight, but when you do 300-500 a minute, well, you do the 
maths on how large that queue will be by the time we find out  :)
