I think this choice is better made by the particular site.  It would
be very nice to have syslog (with a configurable facility) as an
option for all of the AFS servers.

Our Linux mail server generates over 30M of mail logs per day, and it
has not been a problem.  Having all the logs use a single mechanism is
a huge win both for log rotation and for automated monitoring.
