Currently waiting on feedback on the above PR.

Another question has surfaced as well: when using "syslog" logging, the
log messages look a bit strange to me:
Oct  3 23:12:21 obsd-amd64-t02 LOCAL0: INFO  [kea-dhcp6.dhcp6] DHCP6_STARTED Kea DHCPv6 server version 1.1.0 started

Note how the "facility" name is used as the message tag ("LOCAL0: ").
Is this the desired behaviour? I would have expected the "LOCAL0" to be
replaced with the name of the program that created the message.

I don't have previous experience with the log4cplus framework, but
looking at the code i see this in createSyslogAppender():
log4cplus::SharedAppenderPtr syslogapp(
        new log4cplus::SysLogAppender(opt.facility));

Comparing this to the documentation over at
I get the impression that the first argument is "ident", not the
facility string.

Am I missing something?
