The arguments for and against both of these will get us nowhere in 
making a decision.   They are both good system loggers and obviously 
there is relatively little to make one stand out over the other.

So I vote for including whichever one that an active developer puts 
their hand up to maintain...  At the moment, we do not have one for 
either package that I know of.
