I've created a patch for the Python syslog module which:

  • Makes openlog arguments keyword args.
  • Makes openlog ident argument optional.
  • If ident is not passed to ident, basename(sys.argv[0]) is used.
  • The first call to syslog.syslog() calls ident() with no options (if it hasn't previously been called).
  • Variously related documentation changes.

The patch is in the issue tracker as Issue 8451. If anyone out there has the inclination to review it, I'd appreciate it.
