Looks like the latter issue is already fixed in bloody, sorry for the
noise. Any thoughts though on updating the manifest to remove the
specific dependency on the default instance of syslog? I could submit a
pull request, but given the diff is just

that seems more overhead than someone just changing it directly,
assuming there are no objections.
