Ok, I was wrong. I set up a little netcat /dev/log reader and there's
no separator at all between messages. At least not one that made it to
netcat. It also looks like the new logger stops reading after the
first \0, and strips all newlines.

The ucspilogd fix works for the single message case which should be
good enough for handling script output. Using logger as a cheap stdout
syslog injector in supervised services seems like a no-go for now, at
least when ucspilogd is handling reception. I'll have to take a look
at how rsyslog decides what the message end is since my test service
logged correctly when rsyslog was pulling on /dev/log.
