I intended not to get angry about that junk patent again... but... The
problem, as usual, is it's broad scope. Depending on what "similar
methods" are, rsyslog's compressed record transmission mode may also be
now patented by Huwaii. It uses an invalid syslog header to indicate
compression on a per-message level... oops, no, no wrong... When
supporting compressed messages, it doesn't use syslog protocol at all
but instead a proprietary protocol whose first byte means: "<" - this is
a syslog message and "z" - this is a compressed message...

What a mess...

Rainer
