Just doing '1' completely solves my problem and I have not been able
to find any significant performance issues when looking at just boot
time.

That also could lend itself to interim options like logging less to
rsyslog but keeping it for now, which might work around any issues
that come up.

So yes, I'm totally open to just doing '1'.

Kind regards,
Bryan
