Just a paranoid drift, because I've been bitten by it a few times in the
past - make certain that if you do go the rsyslog path, you ensure it is
setup to never block the local logging client(s) no matter what happens
with the remote logging destination. Otherwise, when something goes
awry with the remote logging destination the backpressure will affect
the logging clients (eg dnsmasq in this case though the times I've been
bitten were with other things).
