Would it be possible to find:

collector - the daemon, simply listens on the configured port and
writes what it receives to a file.
maintenance script - ran from the system crontab it simply looks at
the size of the syslog file, or how long its been building, and ages
it giving the daemon a new one to bang at.
web interface - allows an idiot to configure, via a pretty interface,
awk/grep/rrdtool scripts based on the type of message, the host, the
severity, anything else, all of those, none of those, etc.. Maybe one
that places a select few of the messages into a database somewhere for
further processing - or simply breaks up the one big file into a bunch
of little files based on one of those things mentioned previously...

That would be cool as hell! :)

No, it should have not sucked to begin with. The original version
was a sloppy hack, even its author says so.
