That's a good point. It should be fairly easy to add additional wrapper 
functionality to use the LOG_* Framework. I will have a look into it.

I also thinking about moving the syslogd functionality directly into 
RIOT (and not as a pkg). This would enable the user to only use the 
outputs (UDP, File, Terminal etc.)  relevant for a specific application 
(and thus reducing binary sizes).

Maybe I can also fit the syslogd into the existing LOG_* API.
