There is also a 2 year old feature request in the bugtracker to
replace syslog-ng by rsyslog (currently in community repo):

Maybe it would be better if someone interested in that stuff would
read the comments and relevant informations to get a list of pros and
cons.  So he could start a discussion about whether we should make the
switch or not.  If we decide to replace syslog-ng by rsyslog, then we
would kill two birds with one stone by implementing the feature
request and getting rid of the syslog-ng bug reports at the same time.
