I would like to suggest that for a destination that is a pipe (or
perhaps any destination that is not a local file) that the oldest
messages are deleted to make room for newer messages, rather than
the other way around, as is currently being done.

This suggestion could perhaps be a configuration option for every
destination driver, eg,

destination xconsole {
    pipe("/dev/xconsole" owner("root") lose(oldest));
    file("/var/log/xcons.log" owner("root") lose(newest));

with the default being backwards compatible with the current
policy, ie, lose(newest).
