There is a trend of implementing everything just because someone
requests it. I have yet to see any good reason to switch away from
syslog-ng as default. This is Arch. If you really think syslog-ng
doesn't do it for you, just install rsyslogd. What does the default
matter to you if you know better anyway?

If you ask people, I bet you'll get as many votes for rsyslogd as for
syslog-ng. You'll probably also get even more people saying they don't care.

And why did they do this?
