Something similar I often do in CGI programs and other utilities that are not attached to the terminal:

BEGIN { open STDERR, ">", "/tmp/$0-$$.log"; }
and then all die and warn messages go to the log file in /tmp.

To get this to work with Sys::Syslog you would need a little more machinery:

BEGIN { sub SLH::PRINT { syslog("err", $_[1]) } sub SLH::TIEHANDLE { return bless ["dummy object"] => "SLH" } tie *STDERR => "SLH"; }
And then everything written to STDERR gets passed along to syslog.

Disclaimer 1: I didn't actually try this.

Disclaimer 2: I never, ever use software written by Eric Allman.
