Yes.  I did some research on that and it appears that these values are
the same everywhere.  In particular, Python's syslog module hard-codes
them as well.  So there appears to be no harm to it.

In any case, I did first write a Syslog with FFI, but really wanted to
keep MissingH 100% pure Haskell.  So thanks for the offer, but until
someone finds a system where the values are actually different, I think
I'll keep the code as-is.

(Such a system would cause a lot of hassle with logging over the
network, too).
