And sendmail/rsyslog was one example. So yes, spin already do so. But stating
this formally/documented way would be worthy.
That was a particularly gray area because it's simply a matter of installing
a package or not. Installing rsyslog but configuring it to log differently
than the standard is another level of change (although of course also murky
when other applications change their behavior based on the presence or
absence of some other package).
