The main problem with syslog in general is that it's interface
blocks, and if syslogd daemon is dead/can't cope with load nginx
won't be able to work. Additionally, it's slow/resource
consuming. Writing normal files is much faster and more reliable.

Given the above, it's highly unlikely that syslog patches of any
quality will be accepted.
