When I changed it, it was on the strength of tests showing that Fedora
8's default syslogger had a limit of 2KB.  A quick check shows this is
still the case in Fedora 15.  So I'm not convinced that "nearly every"
is anywhere near true.

But having said that, I could go with 896 (or perhaps 900, which seems
a shade less weird).
