Could "CLI utility" be man(1) and info(1)?  :-)

I agree, being able to access the full documentation from command line is
always useful...but probably doesn't require a new utility so much as an
investment in porting documentation to applicable formats.

FWIW, we package our own from source internally, and use
syslog-ng/rsyslog/logstash/elasticsearch.  Syslog as the default is
perfectly fine with us.  I do also use the rotated file method a few
places, so hoping that doesn't disappear.

Thanks for asking the list.
