I have reservations about ejecting Sys-Syslog. It's the sort of module
that's used by sysadmins because like perl itself it's available
everywhere, and has been since forever (perl 3.016, March 1990). Even if
adding it today would be a bad decision, I don't think it's worth the pain
of removing it now.
