Even if you only run one version at a time, having to go back through the logs to find the version from the last startup messages could be a pain on a busy system.

	Not just painful, but also error-prone.

	Including the PID in log messages (as BIND named does) would support

	Perhaps there's a way to do this already by configuration, but I
	couldn't find it ...
