IMO the syslog API itself should not be used for new or RIOT-targeting
applications. Having it available makes porting existing code easier,
thus I still think it is valid to have it available.

Having the syslog-over-udp functionality available is pretty awesome,
especially if it could be hooked up to the existing LOG_* framework.
Have you tried that?

See above. There's an example log backend in sys/log/log_printfnoformat
showing how to create a logging backend module. It should be straigh
forward to use syslog there.
