As a sideline thought to this Gorm's minor config typo......

How easy would it be possible to provide an additional command line option to
 which merely perform a config file syntax and dir/file-permissions check?

i.e much the same flavour of functionality as provided by bind9's
on behalf of named.

Apart from pure syntax checks on the configuration file, it would be
for the checker to confirm valid permissions on the various source/destinations
( where
feasible ) , especially for the conditions wherein syslog-ng is either chrooted
or chowned.

Above all, the checker should attempt to ensure that no mistake exists that
would cause
syslog-ng to exit post SIGHUP or restart.
