Description of problem:
Create realtime interface for syslogd. Syslogd will be able to start another
program and send log messages to stdin of this new process.

solution based on audit-dispatcher from audit package
- syslogd can be run with "-D" option
- "-D" is followed by program, which is started as dispatcher
- dispatcher reads certain messages from stdin
- to specify, which messages are sent to dispatcher, man use "!dispatcher"
directive in /etc/syslog.conf

sample dispatcher. It can be started by syslogd via -D option.
I'm looking forward any comments and ideas.
sysklogd-1.4.2-5.fc7 was built with this feature.
This is going to be addressed via rsyslog. Please see bug 250581 for details.
