I've added some comments on it there.

BTW. I should be very easy to use syslog instead of faimond. Using
syslog for the short messages which are currently received by faimond
makes sense, but IMO it's not useful to use syslog for all the long
log files inside fai.

If you want to use syslog instead of faimond, just redefine the
subroutine sndmon() and luse the command logger for sending messages
to a syslog server.
