I agree with Georg, unfortunately.

And I say "unfortunately" because neither "logopt" nor "logoption" is a good name. The "log" part adds nothing. The man page for syslog calls this "option", which would be my preferred name. But changing it now would be a hassle.

Also, we clearly need a test for this, since apparently none failed when it was changed to the longer name.
