You won't be able to use Mono.Unix directly from EventLog, since we
don't want System.dll to depend on Mono.Posix.dll.  It should be fairly
easy to create a System.Diagnostics.SyslogEventLog type which copies the
Mono.Unix syslog-related code.

The one downside is that Mono.Unix depends on MonoPosixHelper for
converting values, though System.dll already depends on MonoPosixHelper
for System.IO.Compression.DeflateStream, so this really isn't a problem.
