[Openswan Users] No date with plutostderrlog ?

Hi Nicole, 

Not unless you modify the code yourself - it's a trivial change.

By default, pluto uses syslog() functionality, which does time/date 
stamping itself, so pluto doesn't need to.


openswan_log function would need to be modified to get current time/date 
and add it to the fprintf.

The future is here. It's just not evenly distributed yet.
