Unfortunately, 'bootlogd' does not work right now.  It needs a
programmer to spend some time working on it, to make it work again.  The
problem is that it does not presently have the ability to redirect the
console output as it should.  From what I gather, there's an IOCTL in
some versions of Unix that would allow this, but that's missing in Linux
for some reason.  There are patches out there for adding it to the
kernel, but perhaps it's not in there for a reason?  I ran out of time
the day I investigated it.  (I'm in college.)
