syslog-ng doesn't need scsh to work. Only those who want to make
developments on syslog-ng need scsh.

I have tried to incorporate your patch into make_class, but ran into the
following problem (since scheme is more or less chinese to me, I am unable
to fix this):

/home/bazsi/src/libol/utils/make_class <io.c >io.c.x
/usr/share/guile/scsh/scsh.scm:130:18: In expression (index clist #\: ...):
/usr/share/guile/scsh/scsh.scm:130:18: Wrong number of arguments to
string-index (s c)>

So reverting to scsh as long as this is not working.
