Well, I think using syslog only when running nasd as a daemon (which has
no stderr) is better. If you want to save the output of a non-daemonized
nasd in a file you can redirect stderr. I don't think it is useful to
spam the syslog with duplicated debugging messages. I just did not think
about this way to discriminate between nasd usages. At least in part
because neither the rc-script in nas/contrib/ nor the debian init-script
I plan to implement this in the next few days, just not right now. ;)
Including an update to the rc-script.
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
