Replacing sysklogd with rsyslog

If you need to replace old sysklogd with recent rsyslog on centos, `rpm -e --nodeps sysklogd` is rather kludgy as yum will remove initscripts, upon which most of the system is dependent on. However, it is possible to install and remove via the yum shell in one go, which resolves the dependency issues.

# yum shell
> install rsyslog
> remove sysklogd
> run
> quit
