  I'd be much happier if the syslog functionality was in a separate
module, that didn't touch the "detail" module.  The functionality is
really quite separate, even if there is some overlap in the code.

  I'd be OK with adding a "rlm_syslog" to the server, especially if it
could log authentication success/fail, etc. in place of what's
currently in the server core.  The current syslog functionality is
pretty bad, so replacing it with a module is a big win.
