Instead of introducing new aliases and ambiguities by introducing yet

really focus on making it easy to discover the new tool, under its right
name. One way to achieve that should be to provide /var/log/README with
the appropriate hints, since I assume much more people will look for
logs in /var/log like it used to be in most of Linux history rather than
in a tool "logread" that is known by an embedded distro by the name of
