Thanks for the link and the response.  That was my first thought;
unlike the ticket, on my system removing rsyslog wants to uninstall
many more packages.  I can keep track of them, and re-install them after
I install syslog-ng.  They could both be installed in F15, so I
presumed the error could be rectified;  from the ticket, it appears it
won't.  It's good to be aware of that in order to make a decision.
