Boot-time messages under Fedora 16

Under Fedora 14 and earlier, boot-time messages get stored in
/var/log/boot.log. Things like "Welcome to Fedora" and "Starting
udev:" would appear there.
After I upgraded to Fedora 16, this no longer works. Nothing gets
written to /var/log/boot.log. All the output from systemd simply gets
sent to the console, where it scrolls off the screen and is lost.
My /etc/rsyslog.conf file still contains the same old setting as
# Save boot messages also to boot.log
But it doesn't do any good. In particular, systemd's output goes
directly to the console and not to the log.
Is this deliberate? Or is it a bug in systemd? Is there any way to
capture these messages?
