As the current maintainer of the debian package I must say that I agree.
Do not split unless there is a real need for it. As there is no lib/dev
things yet it should be be split out and as there is no real huge docs
yet it should not be split either. That is my packaging practice at least. :)

Interesting. I have never heard about this issue. I have run very lot
of vservers and some of them are logging servers.

Some arches use 3.3 and some 3.4 as far as I know.
