Usually I just a bunch of #defines in syslog-names.c and slap the
extra
facilities on sl_facilities[].

I only ever bother with this on our loghost, but it is very useful.
Linux, Solaris, Irix, and BSD are all a little bit different, and it
is handy to be able to handle various faculities correctly.

For example I handle the Linux/BSD authpriv, auth, and the BSD only
"security" facilities the same, but my loghost runs Solaris and
doesn't
know about the other two facility by default.

Having this built in so I can define it in a configuration file would
be sweet!  But I am looking more for an index than a map (or maybe that
is
what you meant by map).

What I'd like is something like:
(9<<3)  -> CRON		/* !Sun */
(11<<3) -> FTP		/* Linux */
(12<<3) -> NTP		/* BSD */
(13<<3) -> AUDIT	/* Irix */
(13<<3) -> SECURITY	/* BSD */
(15<<3) -> CRON		/* Sun */
